Kaustuv De Biswas, TED Fellow 2011, aspires to influence the design culture in India both in practice and academia by promoting collaborative and interdisciplinary grounds for design research.Kaustuv's core expertise is in design computation and his PhD dissertation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology investigates computational frameworks for future design tools. Leveraging his expertise in technology, Kaustuv has previously been a consultant/advisor to several international architectural practices like morphosis, Norman Fosters and dECOi integrating state of the art computation in their work flow. He has been a research associate at Bentley Systems, where he was instrumental in integrating environmental performance analysis features with Generative Components, a leading parametric design tool. His collaborative work with MVRDV on a democratic urban planning platform radicalizes the politic and process of design and has been exhibited in Rotterdam (2007) and Venice (2008) Biennale.
Kaustuv has also taught numerous workshops and seminars in leading universities/schools such as MIT, Harvard, Architectural Association (London), Columbia University and Georgia Tech introducing advanced computational techniques to design students.
