Prof Alan PennAlan Penn is Professor of Architectural and Urban Computing at The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies and Director of the VR Centre for the Built Environment. He is Dean of the Bartlett. His research focuses on understanding the way that the design of the built environment affects the patterns of social and economic behaviour of organisations and communities. How is it that architecture and urban design matter for those that inhabit them? How is it that the spatial design of cities and neighbourhoods leads to the generation of cultural and community identity? Under what conditions do vital and thriving creative communities occur, and under what conditions does crime and urban malaise develop?

Prof Anthony Steed
Prof Anthony Steed's research is concerned with real-time interactive graphics systems such as immersive virtual reality, mixed reality systems and video games. He in interested in a range of topics from systems engineering, system latency, efficient rendering, 3D interfaces, content creation, usability evaluation, bio-signal monitoring and the general human response to interactive content. In the past couple of years he has focussed particularly on networked graphics and telepresence systems. He is also interested in procedural graphics and computer animation for humans. Prof Steed is interested in working with companies that wan to develop and evaulate new interactive systems and novel displays. He has experience working in the games industry and is also interested in content production pipelines and user-generated content.Read more
Prof Dejan Mumovic (EngD Co-director)
Prof Dejan Mumovic is a building scientist with a background in heating, ventilation and air conditioning engineering.He is a Senior Lecturer in Architectural Engineering at the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies. Dejan is currently leading a group of eight industry/EPSRC co-funded research engineers and doctoral students developing the appropriate techniques necessary for evaluating built environment issues holistically. His current research focuses an integrated approach to energy, health and operational performance.Read more
Prof Niloy Mitra
Prof Niloy Mitra's work deals with shape analysis and exploiting 3D data collections. A common theme of Niloy's research is to understand the important relations between objects and object parts in 3D scenes. Niloy is also working on the identify and encode model variations across collections of similar datasets using statistical techniques. 3D geometry is widely available via online repositories, yet we lack effective tools for browsing and navigating such datasets, e.g.,understanding geometric optimization and manufacturing constraints tobetter navigate the space of constrained meshes. Niloy's research opens up interesting directions in fabrication-aware design and exploration, and optimizing directly on such design manifolds.Read more
Prof Tim Weyrich
Prof Muki Haklay
Muki is interested in public access and use of environmental information, participatory mapping and GIS, citizen science and usability and Human-Computer Interaction aspects of geographical technologies. His current research focus is on Extreme Citizen Science - the development of theories, methodologies and tools that will allow any community, regardless of their literacy level, to carry out their own projects.
