Biography

Patricia Tzortzopoulos Fazenda has graduated in Architecture and Urbanism in Brazil and has industrial experience in collaborative design integration and management. Patricia is Professor of Integrated Design, and Head of Department of Architecture and 3D Design from September 2014. Patricia joined the University of Huddersfiled on the 8th of May 2014, and her role combines research, administration and teaching activities. She has taught on the areas of Design Management, Value Generation and Building Information Modelling in architectural design, developed a number of research projects, supervised research students and published widely.

Patricia’s career encompasses design, architecture, new product development and the built environment, with a focus on multidisciplinarity, integration between design and construction through collaborative working, and value generation in design. She specialised in the design processes through a masters on design process management at the Postgraduate Programme of Civil Engineering at UFRGS. As a design manager, she was responsible for managing client requirements and implementing process innovation to improve effectiveness and efficiency of design and its interfaces with contruction. This practical experience underpins her research and teaching interests.

Patricia’s PhD was awarded in 2004 by the University of Salford, and focused on the design and implementation of product development process models in construction companies. Before completing her PhD, Patricia joined the School of the Built Environment at the University of Salford as a research assistant on the EPSRC funded Salford Centre for Research and Innovation in the Built and Human Environment (SCRI). She became an Academic Fellow, developing research on the design of healthcare built environments, and developed the MSc Built Environment for Healthcare. Patricia was appointed as research coordinator at HaCIRIC (Health and Care Infrastructure Research and Innovation Centre, EPSRC IMRC). She has developed and lead the MSc BIM and Integrated Design, launched in 2011. Following, she became Director of the Design and Property Management Directorate at the School of the Built Environment.

Patricia has engaged in a number of funded research projects examining the design process, focusing on healthcare design and value generation, design front-end issues, requirements management, and the effects of design into health outcomes. She has also developed research in collaborative and integrated design, the synergies of lean and BIM, and on the adoption of BIM in design and construction firms. Patricia’s more recent work focuses on the adoption of BIM to support better design decision making and value generation through design.

Patricia is a member of the International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC), and has been engaged in the organisation and editorship of its conferences. Patricia has an international network of academic collaborators and close links with Brazilian Higher Education Institutions. She has authored over 100 research publications including one book, book chapters, refereed journal papers, research reports and conference papers. Patricia has successfully supervised a number of PhD students, and has acted as examiner for a number of PhD and master thesis in diverse institutions in the UK and overseas. She also acts as a referee in diverse scientific journals and international conferences. Patricia is also an associated Editor for the Brazilian Journal 'Ambiente Construido'.
