Julien Gamerro is a passionate scientist specialized in timber engineering. His atypical background and practical experience in the timber industry have guided him towards research to explore the wide range of possibilities in wood construction.
He learned the trade of carpentry with the Compagnons du Tour de France, where he decided to pursue his studies at the National School of Wood Technology and Industries in France (ENSTIB) to obtain an engineer’s degree and a master of business administration.
Since November 2017, he has been a part of the NCCR Digital Fabrication as a PhD researcher at the Laboratory for Timber Constructions (iBOIS) at EPFL.
His research focuses on the development of standardized prefabricated timber elements using wood-wood connections for basic building components. The main objectives are to prove the feasibility of this construction technique and developed simplified structural analysis methods convenient to use in practice.
