Before joining the University of Sheffield in 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 visualisation 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 visualisation, and scripted geometry.

I have also worked at Ove Arup (internship in data visualisation), 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.
