Dr. Catherine de Wolf
Catherine De Wolf is a postdoctoral scientist in environmental architecture at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). With a background in civil engineering and architecture from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), she obtained her PhD in Building Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She also worked for the European Commission, Arup, and Ney & Partners, among others.
At the boundary of architecture and structure, my research critically reviews the sustainability of the built environment, with a particular focus on circular economy in construction. I collaborate with academic institutions as well as design practices including Arup, Elioth, Arup, and Ney & Partners.
