Roxana Morosanu is a Research Associate in the Design Practice group. As part of the IdEAS project, her work involves using ethnographic, arts-based, and participant-led methods to look at creativity and fixation in design from a social anthropological perspective. Before moving to the University of Cambridge, Roxana worked as a researcher at the Royal College of Art and in the Design School at Loughborough University, and she taught research methods in the Social Sciences department, Loughborough University. Her PhD research was part of a wider interdisciplinary project looking at domestic energy demand of UK families, and that brought together researchers from building engineering, design and social sciences.
