Ir. Peter Eigenraam is a Lecturer at the Structural Design & Mechanics Group in the Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft. His field of expertise Structural Mechanics and Structural Analysis of complex geometric structures. He is involved as a course coordinator and lecturer in the MSc in courses such as Bucky Lab Engineering, Technoledge Structural Design and Structural Design Special Structures. The education developed by Peter ranges from lecturing on theoretical content to hands-on physical and computational modeling.

Peter is a researcher on the topic of Shell Structures. Particularly on Reverse Engineering and Structural Analysis of shell structures designed and engineered by Heinz Isler. Therefore making extensive use  computational modelling tools and finite element analysis.
