I am a critical media scholar with an interest in the cultural and political significance of digital technologies. My current research explores design as a form of worldmaking, focusing on the sociotechnical mediation of sustainability as a scientific, cultural and political program.

I have recently 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.

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
