Careers in Sustainable Construction
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Catherine De Wolf, assistant Professor of Design and Construction Management at the University of Technology Delft (TU Delft). Dr. De Wolf is conducting research on digital innovation towards a circular built environment and teaching academic design. She is the founder of De Wolf Environmental Architecture Thinking. She was one of the initiators of the Structural Engineers 2050 Commitment Initiative with the Carbon Leadership Forum and companies such as Arup and Thornton Tomasetti.
After studying Civil Engineering and Architecture at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), she obtained a Masters of Science in Building Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This was followed by a PhD in Architecture: Building Technology at MIT with Prof. John Ochsendorf. Her dissertation was about low carbon pathways for structural design. During her PhD, she also worked in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, as well as in Kuwait and in South Africa.
