Interview of Julien, postdoc' researcher at IBOIS
Julien Gamerro obtained his PhD at IBOIS (Laboratory for Timber Constructions) in September 2020, and is now starting a postdoctorate. His thesis was funded by the Swiss Digital Fabrication Competence Cluster, which leads the integration of new technologies in architecture. Entitled Development of Novel Standardized Structural Timber Elements using Wood-wood Connections, his thesis aims to extend the use of structural elements using sustainable wood connections to common practice. This work also introduces a simplified calculation method, based on laboratory tests, that meets current wood engineering standards. He shares with us his professional background, his current work, and the new perspectives that are now opening up to him.
