Working on smart spatial systems for you
Reinhard König studied architecture and urban planning. He heads research projects on the complexity of urban systems and societies, the understanding of cities by means of urban simulation and analysis techniques as well as the development of evolutionary design methods.
He focused in his PhD studies on the combination of multi-agent system and system dynamics modelling. During his working experience at the AIT he also established emission projections for Austria and projects developing measures for mitigation of greenhouse gases for Austria. Main focus of his expertise is in Modelling and Simulation combining different methods.
His main interest is the analysis of spatial data and the development of geospatial tools and visualizations for scientific purposes. This includes the design, implementation and data management of spatial databases, as well as the design and programming of analysis and visualization software.
ScientistAngelos has studied Architecture and has been a Marie Curie Fellow at the Innochain ITN. He has previously worked as an Associate at Foster + Partners and as Senior Faculty at IaaC, Barcelona and he has been teaching at The Bartlett, UCL and IaaC among other schools. His main research interest lies in the integration of simulation, optimization and performance drive in the design process.
Business Developer / Research Engineer
Martin studied architecture (TU Vienna, UCL The Bartlett) and holds a PhD in Computer Science (ICRI at Intel, UCL). As NYU CUSP fellow, he is interested in the application of spatial data analytics to understand urban systems and their complexity. At AIT, Martin is a scientist and business developer, contributing with his expertise in urban informatics.
ResearcherTheodore is a leader in the use of advanced computational technologies in design for the built environment always working at the intersections between Design, Data, and Intelligence. He seeks to create innovative, data driven solutions within the field of Computational Environmental Design (CED), while breaking the boundaries between disciplines, integrating technology and automation as driving factors of effective, efficient, and innovative design solutions.
Jacob studied architecture (TU Graz). Before joining the AIT as PhD fellow, he has worked as assistant professor at the Institute of Architecture and Media at TU Graz as well as in architecture offices. His doctoral thesis focuses on the analysis of spatial data. He is interested in the application of machine learning in the fields of architecture and urban planning to analyze the spatial quality of urban space.
Juan Carlos Carvajal Bermúdez is a PhD fellow at the Austrian Institute of Technology. His doctoral thesis focuses on new methods of citizen participation. His master thesis focused on art in public spaces and the participation of communities in the development of their environments.
Anna studied architecture and urban development planning. She is interested in spatial data science and its application in urban design and planning, as well as in the optimisation of design processes via artificial intelligence methods. She has worked in architecture offices in Vienna and London and has curated the exhibition “Planetary Urbanism” at the UN Habitat Conference 2016 in Quito, Ecuador.
Junior Research Engineer
Theresa studied architecture at Graz University of Technology. She spent six months in Liechtenstein and one year in Switzerland doing internships in architectural offices. The main interest of her research are parametric modeling techniques and computational urban design.
Junior Research EngineerAnna studied Urban Area Development and Planning at Warsaw University of Technology with an additional experience of one semester at Politecnico di Milano. She holds a MSc in Smart Cities and Urban Analytics (CASA, UCL) where her main focus laid on analysing behavioural, temporal and spatial aspects of urban data. She is interested in exploration and implementation of spatial data analyses and visualisation methods in the context of urban planning and cities development.
Matthias is a studied Integrative Urban Development (UAS Technikum Vienna). During his master thesis he is developing a website for citizen participation. It should enable citizen to develop public spaces and to contribute to their neighbourhood. He is interested in finding new ways to improve participation and digital spatial planning.
Ondrej is a student of architecture and urban planning. He’s interested in computer assisted design and developing tools that allow architects to adapt their methods for the digital age. He worked on several projects focused on AI assisted urban planning in Singapore, Ethiopia or Kazakhstan.
Andrej finished 6 years of architecture university (FA STU) in Slovakia and is working on a second degree in urban planning in Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, doing an in internship at the AIT as a part of the Master Program. He is interested in using parametric modeling and computational design approaches in both urban planning and architecture.
FreelancerJulius current research interests are optimization methods to enforce spatial resilience within the planning process, parametric modeling techniques and computer assisted urban design. He studied architecture at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar between 2012 and 2018 and worked in architecture offices in Munich, Berlin and Zurich. During his master studies, he focused on integrating flooding resilience methods into the planning process.
