University of Stuttgart, Researcher (DE)
Long Nguyen is a researcher in Computational Design at University of Stuttgart. His academic background is in Computer Science, with an emphasis in 3D computer graphics. Long graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from University of Cambridge in 2010 and a master’s degree with Distinction in Computer Graphics and Virtual Environment from University College London (UCL) in 2011. He joined the AEC community in 2011, with primary focuses on BIM and computational design. He participated in 2 Zaha Hadid Architects projects in Morocco and China as a technology consultant, in which he led the development of a tool set that enables the shared modelling workflow between Rhinoceros/Grasshopper and Revit for complex free-form architectural design. As a computer scientist with several years working with the AEC community, Long has developed a great interest in computational design. His current research interests include computational geometry, digital form findings, digital/robotic fabrication, and generative design. He also has a great passion for teaching programming, algorithms, mathematics and computational design.
