General Information

Andy Dong is currently an Associate Professor in Design Computing and Cognition in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Sydney.

My research concerns the conceptual links between language and design: how does language enact design, what are the linguistic properties of language use in design, and what are the sociolinguistic codes of the language of design. Determining the link between language and design has broader implications in understanding the interconnectedness of two key human faculties. I am working on a book about Why We Design as a precursor to new computational models of inventiveness.

Andy is fortunate to call two of the world's favourite cities, San Francisco and Sydney, home.
