A technological environment is a built environment. Dr. Josh Woods is rethinking how we can sense and measure how buildings “feel” – and reinvent how we relate to the structures we live and work in. He’s a faculty member in our Civil Engineering department; using AI and new ways of measuring materials, his work will transform how we use data to inform design.
As announced in January 2021, the Mitchell Professors are five engineering researchers, funded by a gift from Bruce Mitchell, Sc’68, DSc’20, to explore the frontiers of how humanity and machines coexist. The Mitchell Professors reside in various departments at the Queen’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science (FEAS). They are also all members of Ingenuity Labs. For more information about these professors, please read the story in the Queen’s Gazette as well as the FEAS news article.
