Karey Helms


I am an Associate Professor of Design at Umeå Institute of Design and a Digital Futures postdoctoral fellow at Stockholm University.

My research draws upon care ethics and posthuman feminism to design for situations where technology is often considered out of place, such as in outdoor environments or intimate settings of care. 

Originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, I have a BS in Architecture from the University of Virginia, a MFA in Interaction Design from Umeå Institute of Design, and a PhD in Interaction Design from KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
