I’m a researcher interested in two main themes: how technology influences architecture, and how architecture influences people.
Most recently I established and managed the fundamental research team at WeWork. This was a group of data scientists and social scientists that came together to further our understanding of how workplaces influence people’s happiness, productivity, and connection to their community.
Prior to joining WeWork, I was a senior researcher at CASE and I spent 7 years moonlighting as part of the design team completing Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família. I have written for a number of organizations, including Architect Magazine, AD, and ArchDaily, and my research has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Wired, and Fast Company.
I originally trained to be an architect in New Zealand and later did a PhD in computational design at RMIT University in Australia. I now live in New York.
