Kathrin Dörfler studied Architecture at the Vienna University of Technology and Digital Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Since 2013 she has been a researcher at Gramazio Kohler Research, the Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication, at ETH Zurich. Her research focuses on integrating the digital and physical domain through sensor-integrated design- and fabrication methods, and thereby expanding the application space for digital fabrication. In 2018 she completed her dissertation on adaptive fabrication strategies for the use of mobile robots directly on construction sites and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the NCCR Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich before setting up her own professorship at TU München.
