About me

I am a Senior Lecturer and an architect. My area of expertise includes 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 designs for public spaces in Europe, the United States, and Qatar, and completed an interdisciplinary PhD project on designing solar architectural skins for visual engagement.

At UWE Bristol I lead the undergraduate third-year module Advanced Technology and Environment 3, part of the BSc(Hons) Architecture, as well as the postgraduate Make and Build module, part of the MSc Computational Architecture

My research has explored technologies as well as simulation-based and participatory approaches for communicative facade designs oriented towards meeting zero- and positive-energy building standards. My teaching spans architectural design, technology and computational design. With a broad research interest in architectural design, media, and renewable energy, and a focus on fa├žades, I welcome opportunities for collaborative research, including PhD dissertation supervision. 

Area of expertise

My area of expertise involves Architectural Design, Environmental Design, Facade Design, Architectural Technology, Computational Design, Participatory Research, and Design Research.

I have designed and delivered knowledge transfer activities on sustainability and solar technologies. With expertise in developing designs that integrate photovoltaics and public art, I have international experience in delivering talks and workshops to engage communities on the topic of solar technologies for art and architecture.
I am the project lead for 'Towards Solar Facades as Participatory Public Art', funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), under the Design Accelerator scheme (Grant Ref: AH/X003574/1).
