Doctoral Researcher and Architect Róisín Hyde from the School of Natural and Built Environment is one of 10 speakers who have been chosen to speak at the prestigious upcoming TEDxFulbrightDublin event.
"It is a great honour to represent Queen's School of Natural and Built Environment, the Sustainable Construction Materials Research Group and STEM Women at TEDxFulbrightDublin.
"As a Queen's researcher I am privileged to have the opportunity to collaborate with experts such as Professor Michael McGarry, Architect; Dr Sreejith Nanukuttan, Civil Engineer; Dr Mark Russell, Material Scientist; Mr John Meneely, 3D Laser Scanning Specialist; and Mr Geoff Davis, Concrete Technician, in the development of a high-performance, low-impact, geopolymer concrete cladding panel."
"TEDx is an amazing opportunity to share our research with a wider global audience, and to raise awareness of the negative impact our current methods of construction are having on our planet, and the many ways in which technology can help us to develop more sustainable practices. Digital technologies are transforming how we design and build, and my talk will share some of the processes and technologies I have adopted and developed as part of my PhD research."
