Bryony DuPont, PhD

Headshot 2019 background_edited.jpg

My work is in engineering design, specifically design automation. We create advanced computational approaches to inform engineering design processes, leading to smarter, cheaper, and more efficient products and systems.


Our primary approaches are design optimization, applied machine learning, and machine intelligence. Our engineering applications center on green technologies, specifically renewable energy systems (wind energy and wave energy systems) and eco-design of consumer products.
