Exploring the
intersection of
generative systems
and digital fabrication

Paolo AlborghettiPhD Student

Paolo’s research interests include generative design, creative coding, digital fabrication, robotics, computational geometry, and biology.

He is currently undertaking a PhD at SensiLab, supervised by Professor Jon McCormack, Dr Jason Crow (Architecture, MADA) and Associate Professor Tim Schork (UTS, Sydney). His research is investigating physical computing and distributed robotics applications for generative architecture and design.

Prior to stating his PhD, he also worked on the development of methods to explore the creative potential of generative systems in digital fabrication processes with organic matter, using robotics and sensing technology at SensiLab.

In the past, he collaborated with architecture and design offices in Europe and Australia and taught international workshops on computational design and digital fabrication. Paolo holds a Bachelor of Architecture and a Master of Architectural Science from the Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy.
