Stephanie Bunt is an impassioned educator, researcher, and designer with a background in architecture and engineering. Her research focuses on characterizing, evaluating, and improving the multi-disciplinary design education of architects and engineers, particularly through their design strategies and digital tools. Having a robust background in both disciplines herself, she received her PhD in Architectural Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University, earned her Master of Architecture from the University of Michigan, and earned her Master of Science in Civil Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. She also received two Bachelor of Science degrees in the respective fields from Texas Tech University. Previously, she taught structural courses and design studios at Ball State University and Texas Tech University. she has also worked for architecture firms and contractors, serving as a project engineer on industrial job sites. In continuing her dual approach to architecture and engineering design, she aims to introduce creative approaches to building design education and better bridge the gap between academia and practice.
