Nixon Wonoto (Technology, Materials + Construction Processes; Chair: Vincent Blouin) email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nixon Wonoto has a background in architecture. Nixon completed his Bachelor of Architecture from University of Pelita Harapan in 2009. He then continued to pursue his Master of Science degree in Digital Design and Manufacturing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, completed in 2011. His Master's thesis project dealt with the integration of parametric design and structural analysis for analyzing deployable origami tessellation. The papers of his thesis project have been published in eCAADe, CAD13 and ICSA conference with each paper focusing on different aspects related to structural, geometric scripting, and interoperability between parametric and finite element systems and the workflow of the biological inspired and origami design for architecture. Nixon has more than 6 years experience in 3D solid and parametric modeling, animations and geometric scripting. Nixon's research will be directed toward studying the existing collaborative process between architects and structural engineers as the guideline to develop the integration of the parametric and finite element systems for early design evaluation and optimization.

Arash Soleimani. (Technology, Materials and Construction Processes; Chair: Keith Green). email: email@example.com
Arash Soleimani is a Graduate Assistant and Ph.D. student in PDBE (Planning, Design & the Built Environment) at the School of Architecture, Clemson University. He is concentrating on “Architectural Robotics”.
Arash has a background in architecture. After achieving a Bachelor’s Degree in Architectural Engineering from Isfahan University of Art, Iran in 2008, he completed a post-professional M.Arch Degree in Design at Nottingham University, U.K. in 2010 working from then as a researcher at Rushcliffe Solar, U.K. His Master’s Dissertation is titled ‘Responsive and Interactive Environments in Museums’ (Managing responsiveness and interactivity within museums and exhibitions in a new fashion). It was supervised by Dr. Jonathan Hale, University of Nottingham. He initially examined the philosophy of multi-sensory experiences followed by multi-sensational architecture and finally considering the integration of modern technologies.
Arash is currently pursuing a multidisciplinary Ph.D. within the Research Institute, iMSE (Intelligent Materials, Systems & Environments) under the direction of Professor Keith Evan Green in collaboration and partnership with the faculty and students in Electrical & Computing Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering and Human Factors Psychology. The objective of his doctoral research is to focus on the design, prototyping and evaluation of “Architectural Robotics” (computation embedded in the built environment along with the development of digital interactions whilst exploring new architectural paradigms). His architecture focuses on intelligent forms while inventing new possibilities for content and everyday use; it is a concept of futurism through a persistent investigation of the symbiotic potentials in nature and technology.
George Schafer. (Technology, Materials + Construction Processes; Chair: Keith Green). email: firstname.lastname@example.org
George Schafer has a background in architecture. After receiving a BA in Architecture from Clemson University in 1992, George achieved a M.Arch at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 1996. George's research interest lies in the intersection between emerging technology and the design of environments, and more specifically, on the role intelligent environments might play in transforming one of our most enduring public institutions - the library. A broad goal of his research is to explore how designers, through environments that are integrated with emerging and futuristic technologies, could lead libraries into a new paradigm of customer service that is technology-focused.
