Daniel Carey

Service Designer


I am a PhD researcher at Northumbria University’s School of Design. I am also UX Lead at Status Digital.

My PhD thesis investigates the value of disruptive design practice in health and social care contexts.
This research is sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and is a partnership with Newcastle Carers.

I use data to tell the hidden stories of everyday life.
