Glass & Façade Technology Research Group

gFT member Jacopo Montali successfully defends his PhD thesis

On 30th 2019 January gFT member Jacopo Montali successfully defended his PhD thesis in front of Dr Tariq Masood (University of Cambridge) and Prof Tillmann Klein (Delft University). The research work received positive comments and no revision was requested by the two opponents. Jacopo's work focussed on creating digital tools to automatically support knowledge-intense and repetitive tasks in facade design. The research program was funded by EPSRC and Laing O'Rourke. Jacopo has now founded a startup (Algorixon) which builds upon his PhD work that both aims at increasing productivity in the construction sector and reducing the impact of the sector on the environment.
