Alex Eady

PhD Student

Alexander Keith Eady is a design researcher, pursuing a doctorate in Digital Media at Carleton university in Ottawa, Canada. He looks at deformable technologies, including rapid prototyping methods and possible applications; his doctoral thesis will explore the applications of deformable technologies for therapy of the hand and wrist. Alex interned at the Central Innovation Hub of the Government of Canada where he explored and adapted design methods to interesting and complex problems. He holds degrees in Criminology and Information Technology. Alex's Google Scholar
