Dr. Nicolas Rogeau
Nicolas Rogeau is an engineer, architect, and researcher looking for more sustainable construction methods through the combination of bio-based materials and digital tools. Nicolas completed his thesis within the NCCR DFAB at the laboratory for timber constructions, IBOIS, EPFL. His research focuses on robotic timber construction, and more specifically the integration of fabrication, assembly, and engineering constraints into the design process of panelized timber structures.
Research package 1: Developing a method for assembling timber panels connected by timber joints with a robotic arm. Research package 2: Creating an integrated design tool to automatically generate timber joints geometry, CNC toolpaths, and robot trajectories.
