Event description

Description

Synopsis

Kate will talk about her quest – in research and enterprise - to understand how engineers are embroiled in the repair of dwellings.


She will draw on examples from the UK, Haiti, Japan and NZ to look at damage and viability assessments, thresholds and algorithms used to make decisions about the built environment and notions of choice in making a home.

Kate will also touch on how processes that bypass repair come about through the ways we are taught to think, represent information and conduct ourselves and how these are being both disrupted by and absorbed into new technologies.

Speaker

Dr Kate Crawford is a Technical Lead at an Internet of Things start-up. She began her career as a building services engineer then worked for a variety of private sector, humanitarian and development organisations on water, sanitation and shelter before returning to the UK and moving into the tech sector.
