Briony Thomas

Lecturer in Design Theory

0113 343 9694

School of Mechanical Engineering

BA (Leeds) MA (Leeds) PhD (Leeds)

Briony is a specialist in design science, with particular expertise in geometric structure.

Briony is currently on a secondment in the Faculty of Engineering leading the establishment of cross-disciplinary research and education initiatives in shape-based design and manufacture, collaborating with the colleagues in robotics to identify innovation and exploitation opportunities.

Biography

Briony joined the University of Leeds in 2004, where she currently holds the academic position of Lecturer in Design Theory. After studying textile design, she continued her postgraduate research studies in design theory, gaining MA Design (Design Theory) and PhD (Design Science). A specialist in design analysis, Briony’s theoretical work focuses on the application of geometric concepts as problem-solving tools. This interdisciplinary research transcends the boundaries between art, science and mathematics.

Briony has over ten years’ experience of professional practice. Her work has been exhibited internationally in California and New York, as well as venues in Canada and across Europe.

Research Interests

Briony is currently actively researching in three specialist areas: design theory and analysis; design science; creativity and interdisciplinarity in education.

1. Design theory and analysis
Briony has ten years’ experience of research in visual analysis of design and the visual arts. This encompasses geometric and visual analysis within specific design categories, cultural contexts and the development of systems of classification. Much of this work has been associated with the Textile Archiving Group led by Professor Michael Hann. Her most recent research in this area has been in collaboration with Dr Jamie Marsden, an expert in brand communications and member of the Centre for Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Leeds University Business School. This work explores the expressive properties of design elements in visual communication strategies.

2. Design Science
Briony’s interest in the connections between the arts and the sciences revolves around the use of mathematics as a connection between traditional disciplinary boundaries. Her research developed from a fascination in the geometry of pattern and its roots in crystallographic theory. This fundamental research transcended the boundaries of design, mathematical group theory and areas of the physical and biological sciences. Briony is particularly interested in interdisciplinary research projects involving tiling, paper-folding and geometric form. She has worked with colleagues in materials science, mathematics, virology and computer science and has particular expertise in geometry and three-dimensional form. Briony’s creative practice demonstrates the artistic exploration and visualisation of mathematical problems.

3. Creativity and Interdisciplinarity in Education
Briony is an active participant in projects relating to public engagement in science through her work in the development of creative activities for the mathematics classroom. She has been an invited speaker for Mathematical Association and has delivered school workshops and teacher training events funded by the NCETM and STEMNET. Briony frequently participates in international public workshops promoting mathematics and collaborates with colleagues in Education and Philosophy. She has a particular interest in creativity within the school curriculum and interdisciplinarity within higher education.

Briony welcomes applications and enquiries from research students to study projects connected to any of the above areas. Please email for any further information regarding any of Briony’s research or to discuss potential research collaborations or projects.

Teaching

Since 2004 Briony has been responsible for the development, delivery and assessment of a number of core undergraduate and postgraduate modules taught across the School. As well as taught and research postgraduate supervision, Briony’s role has also involved development of research student provision and training both within the School and wider University, including offering training for students and new PhD supervisors. In 2012 the University of Leeds awarded Briony a University Student Education Fellowship in recognition of her teaching excellence and the impact of her work on different sectors ranging from primary school education through to postgraduate research provision.

Briony’s teaching activities have included the delivery and assessment of the following modules:

DESN1545 Patterns and Culture (BA school-wide module, School of Design and University discovery module).
DESN2640 Design Theory (BA school-wide module, School of Design and University discovery module).
DESN3660 Independent Dissertation (BA core module, School of Design).
DESN5100 Research Methodology (MA/MSc core module, School of Design).
DESN5105 Negotiated Project (MA/MSc core module, School of Design).
DESN5106 Reflective Report (MA/MSc core module, School of Design).
TEXT5116 Research Dissertation (MSc core module, School of Design).

Briony also regularly acts as a supervisor on the international YCCSA summer school scholarship programme for students from the UK, EU and overseas institutions. Scholarship students undertake 9 week placement during which time they pursue an interdisciplinary research project with academic supervisors from different disciplines.
