Biography

Joao Soliman-Junior is a Research Assistant at the Innovative Design Lab, School of Art, Design and Architecture. Joao's involvement on academic research started in Brazil, in 2012, during his period as an Undergraduate Research Assistant at the Building Innovation Research Unit (Norie) – research centre from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). During the six years Joao was part of Norie, he collaborated on multiple national and international research projects focused on the use of digital technologies and Building Information Modelling (BIM) to support building design and construction.

Joao has graduated in Civil Engineering in 2016 and was awarded his MSc in 2018 by the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. During his masters, Joao explored how technology and automation could help in streamlining the assessment of healthcare building design in Brazil, from a regulatory perspective. Joao is now expanding his masters research and undertaking a PhD at the University of Huddersfield, exploring the use of automation in healthcare building design based on the British regulatory and guidance framework.

Joao's research encompasses the use of technology, automation and BIM to support architectural and engineering building design. His career is focused on multidisciplinary research and has been strongly anchored to Lean principles. Most of his research engagement has been in projects with an important involvement from the industry, underpinning his practical and collaborative initiatives.
