Professor Glenda Caldwell

Professor Glenda Amayo Caldwell is a Professor in Architecture and the Academic Lead Research in the School of Architecture & Built Environment, Faculty of Engineering at the Queensland University of Technology. Prof Caldwell is an architecture and design scholar with internationally recognised expertise in physical, digital, and robotic fabrication, leading Industry 4.0 innovation through human-centred research in design robotics, media architecture, and human-building interaction. Her research sits at the cross section of architecture and interaction design where she: (1) integrates human, social, and technical considerations into robotic processes and industrial manufacturing; and, (2) uses a ‘Research-through-Design’ approach to engage industry and communities in a reflexive conversation about creativity, architectural innovation and how we might collaboratively solve societal and environmental challenges and harness future opportunities. Prof Caldwell is co-leader of the QUT Human-Building Interaction research group, QUT Design Lab, Design Robotics & Digital Fabrication Program, and an active researcher in the Urban Informatics Research group. She is a design lead at the ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Hub and the co-leader of the Designing Socio-technical Robotic Systems Program in the ARC Australian Cobotics Centre (ACC).
