Ava is a registered architect and Associate Professor in Media Architecture and Urban Digital Interaction on the MSc Architectural Computation programme at The Bartlett University College London. Ava brings knowledge and expertise in the areas of human-computer interaction and performance, with a focus on sensory environments and human behaviour within the built environment when mediated through Mixed Reality, AR, VR, and Ubiquitous Computing. Her research is practice based and she leads a unique longitudinal living ‘Media Architecture’ lab environment in which she investigates responsive and location-based computing within the urban context. Ava lectures internationally and has published extensively on the transformation and acquisition of urban space through new media. She has been instrumental in building a network of key players from academia, media art, and industry that address spatial, social and interactional issues in the design and implementation of Media Façades and Urban Digital Interaction. She was chair of Media Architecture Biennale 2012, 14, 16 and 18.
