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.
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.
