Thomas Marriott

Thomas Marriott is a PhD candidate in Design at Goldsmiths University, London. His PhD research, which examines use of body-worn video cameras by police in England and Wales, draws on design, sociology, and science and technology studies and sits at the intersection of design and social research. The project has involved the design and production of research devices which have been used with police officers during fieldwork as a way of facilitating and prompting conversations about the multiple roles of capturing technologies within policing. He is interested in how design can be used as a tool to critically question the role and implications of technology in societies.
