    About

    Personal Statement

    My interests and expertise centre on sustainable architectural design through the exploration of emergent materials and technologies. I am particularly interested in documenting, analysing and pursuing the invention and implementation of pioneering materials and technologies for architecture. I have taught, conducted research and published in the areas of Sustainable Design, Architectural Envelopes, Environmental Technology, and Light in Architecture. Since 2011 I am leading the ECALab (Environmental Ceramics in Architecture Laboratory). I joined the Liverpool School of Architecture in December 2010. I am a registered architect with a PhD in Architecture from Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura-Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (ETSAM), Spain. I have studied, researched and taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA), Harvard University (USA), University of Plymouth (UK), and ETSAM (Spain).
