Chris Elsden

Chancellor's Fellow

Dr Chris Elsden is an interaction design researcher, with a background in sociology, and expertise in the human experience of a data-driven life. Using and developing innovative design research methods, his work undertakes diverse, qualitative and often speculative engagements with individuals and organisations to investigate emerging relationships with technology – particularly data-driven tools, distributed ledgers and financial technologies.

On the Creative Informatics project, Chris’ own research explored ‘Creative Transactions’, considering how new financial technologies will mediate creative practice, business models and relationships with audiences. Chris has recently taken up a new post as a Chancellor's Fellow in Service Design at the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Design Informatics, but continues to work closely with the CI team.
