His research also aims to develop design-centered methods and approaches to proactively surface ethical issues related to technology (particularly those surrounding social values such as privacy and security).
Richmond's work utilizes qualitative and design-based methods, drawing from human computer interaction, science & technology studies, and speculative and critical design. He completed his PhD at the UC Berkeley School of Information and has undergraduate degrees in Information Science and Science & Technology Studies from Cornell University.
