Niccolò Dambrosio is a Research Associate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of Stuttgart. He holds a Master in Architecture degree from the Polytechnic University of Bari as well as an advanced degree as a Master of Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University.

With a profound interest in computational design processes and digital fabrication in architecture, Niccolò's current research focuses on the use of anisotropic fiber composite materials in additive production processes for high performance, lightweight structures.

Since July 2019, Niccolo is pursuing his PhD in the context of the Cluster of Excellence Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture.
