Prior to his appointment as CBI Director, Stout led the CBI's imaging, visualization, and modeling group, which focuses on imaging biological processes and systems by using 3-D technologies, virtual reality simulations, and modeling. In spring 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic posed shortages of ventilator equipment and personal protective equipment, Stout, along with fellow CBI faculty, staff, and NYITCOM students, collaborated with local healthcare facilities and small tech companies in Nevada and Vermont to aid local healthcare facilities by prototyping 3D printed design solutions for PPA and other COVID-19 related challenges.

Marcella Del Signore

Marcella Del Signore, Associate Professor, Director, MS Urban & Regional Design, School of Architecture & Design, New York Tech

“Technology-based Processes at the Intersection of Architecture and Urbanism”

Marcella Del Signore is an architect, urbanist, educator, scholar, and the principal of X-Topia, a design-research practice that explores the intersection of architecture and urbanism with technology and the public, social and cultural realm. Her research focuses on interscalar design approaches that engage the notion of socio-technical systems through computation, prototyping, material and fabricated assemblies, data-driven protocols, and adaptive environments. She has published a wide array of refereed papers, articles, and book chapters and is the co-author of Urban Machines: Public Space in a Digital Culture that explores how information and communication technologies have radically changed the way we inhabit and operate in the urban space.
