She has published widely and continues to engage in design at the intellectual and productive interface between science, art and design.
Interests Neri is interested in advanced digital applications for architectural practice and their contribution to a design paradigm promoting generative design processes. Her current research at the MIT Design Lab attempts to establish new forms of design knowledge and new processes of practice at the interface of design, computer science, structural engineering, biology, and ecology. Her work attempts to integrate scientific principles and advances in modern biology, engineering and computation within generative processes of design.
