Title of thesis: Promoting Sustainable Food Packaging Design Practices in UK Higher Education: Towards a toolkit development.

Miss. Fengjin Yu, pursued her BFA at The Art Institute of Chicago and her MA from the Royal College of Arts. She is originally from China. Her former project focused on exploring how digital art expresses the transformation of space, through the second interpretation of “nature” in the post-digital era. Her recent Loughborough University research project focuses on experience design, ecology, and food culture to conduct interdisciplinary research and practice.

Supervisors: Simon Downs and Dr Alis Iacob.

Fengjin's PhD project seek to develop a toolkit to support UK higher education stakeholders to teach sustainable food packaging design practice. Supporting the design practice of packaging for sustainable foods in higher education environments involves a multifaceted issue, including design research, pedagogy, design practice, and sustainability awareness.
