Oliver Bucklin is a Post Doctoral Researcher and Digital Timber group leader at Gramazio Kohler Research.

He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the University of Washington and a Masters in Architecture I from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Experience at the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities led to an interest in scientific approaches to architectural design.

Oliver defended his PhD at the University of Stuttgart in 2024, where his research combined aspects of timber construction, building physics, digital fabrication, and plugin development towards the optimization of solid timber building envelopes. Further research covers embedded electronics and custom mechanics, including mobile robotics and end-effectors. He has had extensive experience in the United States in general construction and woodworking.

Oliver’s current research seeks to bring the NCCR DFAB research developments from the last 10 years into the timber industry through open-source software development and industrial collaboration.
