Research, scholarly and professional interests

Monika’s research expertise lies in the critical intersection of two knowledge domains – Architecture and Digital Moving Images.  Her practice-based research has global exposure and is internationally recognised for its ability to give new insight into how to create innovative and intelligible digital manifestations (outputs) that transform complex architectural concepts/problems into digital moving image form (findings) that meaningfully engage stakeholders, governments and the public. Research outputs are often produced in the form of linear digital films, 2D/3D animations, navigable VR and other digital formats.
