Research summary

I am currently researching workspace use, wellbeing, productivity and happiness. The project is funded by KESS II and is being conducted in partnership with Orangebox, an office furniture design and manufacturing company. In recent years, various factors such as changes in technology and an increase in flexible working practices, have led to changes in how offices are designed. In this project, I will be investigating new ways of working, modern office design, and psychological wellbeing.
