    Master’s & Ph.D. Advising

    I am looking for master’s and PhD students and Postdocs to work on performance-driven and AI-supported architecture design and built environment analysis. Students and early-career researchers in computer sciences, building science and services, architecture or related majors with strong enthusiasm in research are welcome to apply. Skills in machine learning, parametric design and/or building performance simulation is a plus. Please feel free to contact me with CV (and/or transcripts, sample publications) attached if you are interested.
