Personal profile

Research interests

My work looks to augment and transform the professional practice of architecture through the use of digital design and advanced fabrication methods, specifically to facilitate complex, sophisticated building envelopes and architectural surfaces. This includes material research in laminate and composite construction, fabrication and assembly, and information management processes that service design.
