I am an associate professor of architecture at the University of Notre Dame, School of Architecture. My research looks at the intersection between green technologies and building systems. My research seeks to tie the buildings materials, system and design technologies together with the goal to make the building become carbon neutral. I teach technology classes about building system design and integration, structure systems, building materials and performance.


My research has appeared in the Journal of Energy and Buildings, Building and Environment and the Journal of Green Building. The National Science Foundation, the University of Maryland Division of Research,  the Rockefeller Foundation, the Oak Hill Foundation, and University Transportation Research Center have sponsored my research.


I have more than decade of experience in private sectors as practitioner working on high profile projects. Currently, I am serving as committee member on International Code Council and United State Green Building Council.
