Marina Konstantatou
Trumpington St
Cambridge CB2 1PZ

Biography:

Marina was educated at the School of Applied Mathematical & Physical Sciences, NTUA. Later on, she moved to London to study at the Emergent Technologies & Design program at the Architectural Association. Being a mathematician specialised in advanced CAD & CAM tech­nologies her objective is to apply her diverse background on design ori­ented research & development. Currently she is pursuing her doctoral studies at the University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering on geometry-based structural design & analysis
