Dr. Aleksandra Anna Apolinarska


Aleksandra Anna (Ania) Apolinarska is a postdoctoral researcher at Gramazio Kohler Research (GKR) with strong interests in computational design, complex geometries, and digital fabrication.
She holds a Doctor of Sciences degree from ETH Zurich, completed 2018, with research on novel timber structures enabled by computational design and robotic assembly.
Previously, she gathered vast experience in development of geometrically complex buildings through several years of international professional career.
In 2023 Dr. Apolinarska concluded her research supervision within the NCCR DFAB and has taken up research in the areas of computational design and AI within the Design++ Network at ETH Zurich.

Work Topic

My research focuses on complex, non-standard discrete assemblies such as timber frame and plate structures. This entails development of design strategies and tools to navigate complex interrelations between i.a. geometry, structural performance, assembly sequence and fabrication constraints.
