Ms Roisin Hyde is an Architect and Doctoral Research Student at QUB School of Natural & Built Environment. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from UCD, became a Chartered Member of the RIAI and practiced for over 15 years in the areas of Conservation Architecture and Sustainable Design. Her current research focuses on the development of a prototype 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 2018-2019 Fulbright Research Student she will travel to UNC to produce a full-scale geopolymer panel with a durable self-cleaning, hydrophobic, hybrid nanomaterial surface, using local industrial by-product and waste materials.
