Caitlin Morris, a PhD student in the Fluid Interfaces group, is among the 2024 cohort of MIT MAD Design Fellows. Caitlin is an artist, researcher, and educator creating work around themes of perception and the human-environment relationship. 

Each year, the MIT Morningside Academy for Design (MAD) supports MIT graduate students with a fellowship allowing them to pursue design research and projects while creating community. Pulling from different corners of design, they explore solutions in fields such as sustainability, health, mobility, urban planning, social justice, or education. On May 1, 2024, MAD announced the 2024 cohort of Design Fellows at the MIT Museum.

The event “Designers for the Future,” which was part of Boston Design Week, was the occasion to put in dialogue three generations of Design Fellows—the 2022 inaugural cohort, the current 2023 cohort, and the incoming 2024 cohort—to explore how to design across time, space, and disciplines.
