I am a practitioner and academic of computational architecture. I run a London-based interdisciplinary company SliderStudio and work as a part-time researcher at the Estonian Academy of Arts.
I finished my formal training and started professional career as an architect in Estonia, then completed a MSc in Computing and Design as well as a PhD in Architecture at the University of East London. In 2011, I was awarded a doctorate degree for my thesis investigating agent based techniques for advanced architectural modelling. My special interests lie in using generative, parametric and programmable tools at the early stages of design process.
While my academic work focuses on parallel computing algorithms for form-finding purposes, I have also built a number of technology prototypes exploring parametric design concepts. With a background in architecture, I have deployed these prototypes successfully in practice. As an experienced trainer I also conduct parametric modelling workshops for students and professionals.
