I am professional Computational designer and Digital fabrication expert


I am an architect and computational designer, previously research assistant at the chair of Digital Building Technologies (DBT), Institute of Technology in Architecture (ITA) of ETH Zurich. 

My main interest lies on the field of advanced computational modeling, robotic/digital fabrication, emergent technologies and material innovation, with applications in the field of architecture and design. My main work focuses around complex geometries, data-driven design and digital fabrication processes, with a particular focus on additive manufacturing.

Currently doing research and development for different companies,  working on Mesh unroll, subdivision and discretization, development of fabrication processes for CNC and wood elements, researching on design methodologies and tools for both additive and subtractive manufacturing.
