Dimitris Papanikolaou

We are pleased to announce that Dimitris Papanikolaou is joining the faculty at UNC Charlotte in a tenure-track joint appointment in the School of Architecture (SoA) and Department of Software & Information Systems (SIS). Dimitris recently completed a position as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.  He holds a Doctor of Design (DDes) from Harvard, an MS in Media Arts and Sciences (Media Lab) from MIT, an MS in Design and Computation from the School of Architecture at MIT, and a Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens. Dimitris will bring with him an Urban Synergetics Lab that will operate at the intersection of Architecture, Computation, and Information Systems with a mission to explore new cooperative models of architectural/urban intelligence in support of the DesComp program and more broadly architecture and computation. While Dimitris will initially focus on urban mobility systems, he expects to expand his work in architectural areas such as the Internet of Things and intelligent structures, working on projects related to computational design and digital fabrication
