Maria Yablonina was a Research Associate and Doctoral Candidate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart from 2016 - 2022. In 2020, she joined John H. Daniels Faculty at University of Toronto as Assistant Professor.
Maria earned a M.Sc. degree at the University of Stuttgart's ITECH programme in 2015. In 2015 she also received the faculty’s Diploma Prize. In 2017 she has been awarded a Landesgraduierten-Scholarship to pursue her doctoral thesis.
With a strong interest in robotics and digital fabrication techniques, she was focusing on exploring potential fabrication techniques enabled through introduction of architecture-specific custom robotic tools for construction and fabrication. Her work includes development of hardware and software tools as well as complementing material systems.
