Concerns over climate change have raised the need for zero energy buildings as well as for more livable cities.

As an architect and academic, I research technologies and processes for designs that improve the perceptual quality of spaces as well as buildings' energy performance. After my studies at IUAV University of Venice, I worked on art and designs for public spaces in Europe, the United States and Qatar, and completed an interdisciplinary Ph.D. project on designing solar architectural skins for visual engagement.

My work has explored technologies and simulation-based approaches for communicative urban skin designs oriented towards meeting zero-energy building standards. With a broad research interest in architectural design, media and renewable energy, I welcome opportunities for cross-boundary collaboration.
