Tim Merritt is assistant professor at the Arhus School of Architecture, and holds a Ph.D. from the National University of Singapore. He has been involved with the design and research of various technologies including social and physical interaction, cooperative games, tools for creativity and work contexts, biological media, and interactive art installations.

Recognizing that the rapid advances in materials research, digital technology, and manufacturing processes could dramatically change the way we live, work, and play, his research focuses on possible futures through design experiments to invite discussion and critical reflection. His current work involves exploring shape-changing interfaces, technology as tools for design and creativity, and investigations into social responses to technology.
