Rebecca Hartwell

Rebecca Hartwell is a Post-doctoral researcher in the Structural Design & Mechanics group at TU Delft. She has a MEng in Material Science (University of Manchester), and her Ph.D. research (University of Cambridge) examined the role of material efficiency in architectural glass and façade design. This involved bridging the gap between industry and academia to develop the knowledge, tools, and technologies to promote the effective reuse and high-value recycling of building envelopes. Rebecca’s current research focuses on developing reversible connections for safe and sustainable load-bearing structures for an NWO-funded demonstrator project. Alongside her academic research, Rebecca contributes to several cross-industry working groups, working to develop guidance on sustainability in façade design.
