Research team

Charlotte Bates is a researcher on the ERC project ‘Universalism, universal design and equitable access to the designed environment’ at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her work touches on the body and materiality, everyday life and sense of place.

Luna Glucksberg was a researcher on the ERC project from May to December 2015, and she is interested in the broad field of urban studies, on the cusp of anthropology, sociology, criminology and the many other disciplines that deal with the lives of cities. Methodologically, Luna is an ethnographer of urban spaces, but is interested in and curious about many other types of data, including quantitative and archival.

Rob Imrie is director of the ERC project on Universal Design. His research is focused on disability, design and embodiment with an interest in exploring the shaping of design through the intersections of the sensual nature of body-environment interactions. At present, Rob is Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Kim Kullman is a researcher on the ERC project ‘Universalism, universal design and equitable access to the designed environment’ at Goldsmiths, University of London. He is interested in everyday practices of mobility and transport, especially in how such practices are learned, sustained and transformed across the life course.

Rachael Luck works on the ERC project ‘Universalism, universal design and equitable access to the designed environment’ at the Open University. Using multiple research methods, including visual techniques, her research focuses on design practice, looking at the ways that things, including the built form, take shape in and through embodied interactions between people.
