Ms Roisin Hyde is a Doctoral Research Student at QUB School of Natural & Built Environment. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from UCD and became a Chartered Member of the RIAI. Her current research focuses on the development of a high-performance, low-impact, cement-free geopolymer concrete cladding panel through the use of innovative automated technologies including 3D Laser Scanning, Point Cloud Modelling and 3D Printing. As a Fulbright PhD Research Student in UNCC, she will work with Researchers in the Schools of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering to produce a full-scale prototype panel using local industrial by-product and waste materials.
