Before joining the University of Sheffield in January 2011 I was a research assistant at the Dynamic Ornament prototype (with David van der Maas)

Media and Design Lab of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), where I completed a PhD on Dynamic Ornament, a proposal for the visualization of sensor data in buildings. At EPFL I was involved in a Swiss research project investigating the future of studio education in architecture, and taught in a series of architecture studios and workshops that introduced code as a design tool and explored the cultural implications of digital design practices.

Prior to joining EPFL, I worked as a designer and program manager at Harvard┬┤s Center for Design Informatics (CDI): my projects at Harvard focused on applications of technology in design education, data visualization, and scripted geometry.

I have also worked at Ove Arup (internship in data visualization); Harvard’s faculty of Visual and Environmental Studies (teaching fellow offering workshops on interactive installation art); the Boston Architectural Center (instructor in 3D Modeling); and Herman Miller (consultant on numerous projects). I have worked as an architect on projects involving the design of spaces for remote collaboration and computer-augmented learning.
