He investigates 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.
Head of CIL
He has previously worked as an Associate at Foster + Partners and as Senior Faculty at IaaC. His main research interest lies in the integration of simulation, optimization and performance drive in the design process.
Theodore 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 is interested in applying spatial data analysis with simulation methods in the realm of urban planning with a particular interest in comparing this top-down driven mode of development with evolutionary city growth.
His interest lies in the use of artificial intelligence within computational design. Whereas his master’s research focused on the integration of deep learning methods, his doctoral research targets its application, deployment, and lifecycle.
