Shelby Elizabeth Doyle, AIA NCARB LEED AP is an Assistant Professor of Architecture and Daniel J. Huberty Faculty Fellow at the Iowa State University College of Design. Her scholarship is broadly focused on the intersection of computation and construction and specifically on the role of digital craft as both a social and political project. Doyle was hired under the ISU President’s High Impact Hires Initiative to combine digital fabrication and design/build at Iowa State University. This led to the founding of the ISU Computation + Construction Lab with Nick Senske and Leslie Forehand. She holds a Master of Architecture degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia.
Leslie Forehand is a Lecturer in the Department of Architecture and an internationally experienced architect/designer and researcher. Her research seeks to find new solutions in the digital processes, specifically advancing the materiality of additive manufacturing. Leslie holds a Masters of Architecture from Pratt Institute and a BS in Architecture from the University of Virginia, and her personal and student work has been exhibited and published worldwide.
Nick Senske is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the Iowa State University College of Design. His research looks at computational software as a cultural artifact and has been presented internationally at conferences and workshops. In the past, his work has examined the most effective ways to teach computational skills in professional architecture schools, and his design work explores the physical implications of ‘craft’ in coding and scripting. Senske was previously Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He received a B. Arch from Iowa State University and a SMArchS in Design Computation from MIT. He is currently completing his PhD in Architecture at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
CCL Lab Associate
Erin Hunt is the ISU Computation & Construction Lab Associate where she oversees operations and conducts research. Her research interests include construction applications for additive manufacturing technologies, specifically 3D printing. Erin plans to pursue an advanced degree in digital fabrication and computational design. She was an Undergraduate Research Assistant with the ISU CCL and she holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Iowa State University.
Ceramic Research Assistant
Kelly Devitt is a Ceramic Research Assistant for both the ISU Computation & Construction Lab and the ISU Integrated Visual Arts Department. Her research explores Cone 6 and High Fire glazes, the use of different clay bodies and consistency in ceramic 3D printing, and her personal work explores large sculptural forms. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Iowa State University and plans to pursue an advanced degree in ceramic arts.
