Adrien graduated from the University of Sheffield in July 2020 with an MEng (Hons.) (First Class) in Civil and Structural Engineering with a year in industry, which he spent working at AKT II. His master's dissertation focused on developing neural network based inverse solvers for EIT damage detection in concrete elements.

In September 2020, Adrien joined the department as a research student to develop data-driven design models under the supervision of Dr Danny Smyl, Dr Andrew Liew and Dr Iman Hajirasouliha.

Research Project: Data-driven design models

One of the key challenges faced by the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry is reconciling the complexity of design projects with the need to deliver on time and under budget. This project explores the use of data-driven design models to generate real-time structural solutions for architectural proposals, thereby avoiding the need for computationally expensive and time demanding analysis. The over-arching aim is to harmonise collaboration and communication between architects and engineers, and hence allow greater design exploration to fulfil a client’s needs.
