Computational Design, Fabrication, Timber, Digital Twin, Prefabrication
I am an architect engineer currently working as a Research Associate in the Centre for Natural Material Innovation in the Department of Architecture at the University of Cambridge.
My research is funded by the Centre for Digital Built Britain and the Construction Innovation Hub and explores the potential of using engineered timber with modern methods of construction to deliver school buildings in a sustainable and efficient manner. My research interests lie at the intersection of computational design methods, complex geometries and digital fabrication as drivers for the development of sustainable material systems and construction methods. During my PhD studies at the University of Bath I focused on developing a new framework to optimise the way we design and fabricate geometrically complex, large-scale structures. I hold an MSc in Emergent Technologies & Design from the Architectural Association in London and I have previously worked at Wilkinson Eyre Architects, participating in the design of award-winning international bridge projects. I am passionate about teaching architecture and computational design and have taught extensively in higher education institutions as well as international workshops that focused on advanced computational design and fabrication methods. The pavilions constructed during such workshops have been published and exhibited internationally.
