ir. Anna Maria Koniari is a Phd Candidate in the AiDAPT Lab, TU Delft's AI Lab for Design, Analysis, and Optimization in Architecture & the Built Environment since October 2023. She holds a master’s degree in Architectural Engineering from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and a MSc in Building Technology from TU Delft. During her studies, she focused on computational methods to enhance conventional design processes and, particularly, her MSc thesis was dedicated to the development of a customized Topology Optimization formulation for the design of minimum mass cast glass structures under performance and manufacturability constraints. Currently, her Phd research lies on machine learning applications for optimization of retrofit strategies at scale towards upgrading building’s energy performance.
