Beyond her teaching role she has had key responsibilities for managing the CETL-funded Centre of Excellence Product and Automotive Design (CEPAD) and a core research focus around the development of design pedagogy

    Karen's PhD 'Advanced Personal Telecommunication Products, Systems and Industrial Design' considered the role of industrial designers during the development of advanced technology mobile communication products. It argued that industrial designers should be involved early during development to enhance a development team's recognition of emergent design opportunity and to strengthen understanding of users in relation to products and associated systems. It proposed a design process model that encourages an integrated and collaborative exploration of design opportunity from a user perspective
