I am a critical media scholar. I study the design and use of civic media, and am particularly interested in the ways these media may reveal, provoke and reshape our political imagination.

I received my PhD from Simon Fraser University’s School of Communication, where I was part of the Applied Communication and Technology (ACT) Lab. I have since completed a Postdoc at the University of British Columbia’s Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability, and am now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial Design at Delft University of Technology. I am part of the Design Conceptualization and Communication section, and an active member of the idStudioLab.

You can find a list of my publications here.

Born and raised in Israel, I lived in Vancouver, Canada for over a decade, and am now in the Netherlands. You can reach me at roy [at] digitalsustainability [dot] com
