Selected Scholars
Claudia Eugenin
Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Santiago, Chile
Claudia Eugenin is a graduate of civil engineering in construction at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and holds a master’s degree in engineering sciences from the same institution. During her undergraduate studies, she undertook an interdisciplinary major in engineering and architecture. Her research focuses on improving the sustainability and robustness of concrete 3D printing, aiming to later apply this construction method to social housing in Chile. To further complement her studies, she has worked with various Chilean NGOs to provide housing and support, addressing the country’s housing crisis. Eugenin also completed an internship at the Holcim Centre de Recherche in Lyon, France, where she worked on a digital design and fabrication project. Currently, she works as a researcher for a government-funded project in Chile developing 3D-printed social housing solutions and for another project that converts mine tailings into construction materials.
Kiley Feickert
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA, United States
Kiley Feickert is an architect pursuing her SMArchS degree in building technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where she joins the Digital Structures Research Group led by Caitlin Mueller. Feickert aims to reduce embodied carbon in buildings through the critical evaluation of construction materials and methods. Her research focuses on optimising structural systems for material efficiency and she is particularly in exploring the extent to which digital fabrication can reduce the labour required to build complex, yet efficient forms. Prior to joining the Building Technology Lab at MIT, Kiley practiced as an architectural designer in New York City and London. Most recently, she worked on the design and construction of Google’s London headquarters in Kings Cross.
