Alessandra Fabbri

Alessandra Fabbri is a PhD candidate in the Department of Architecture’s Design and Computation Group, and is pursuing the Advanced Urbanism concentration with the MIT Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism. Her research explores the debate around risk uncertainty and unpredictability in pursuance of an integrated approach for disaster risk reduction. Parallelisms and interdependences between design, science, philosophy, and computation are at the core of her investigation.

Alessandra completed a Master of Architecture cum Laude in Urban Design at the University of Ferrara, Italy, an exchange program at the Universidad La Catolica de Cordoba, Argentina, and a Master in Emerging Technologies and Design at the Architectural Association, London.

Alessandra was formerly an Associate Lecturer at the University of New South Wales, Sydney and has also worked in practice in Genova, Milan, Paris, London, and Sydney.
