Associate Professor and CSALT Director
Professor Boyle supervises materials research in concrete, cellulose, building lime, historic pigments and construction systems through teaching and research activities. She has recently been named the recipient of the 2019 Precast Studio Program Award from the Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (CPCI) which will allow CSALT to enhance our 3D printing technologies and experiment with Ultra-High Performance concrete. She is also a part of the Interdisciplinary Sustainable Communities Research Cluster funded through Carleton's Multidisciplinary Research Catalyst Fund in 2019.
Professor Boyle currently holds an National Sciences and Engineering Development Grant entitled "Developing Hemp Hybrid Wall Structural Insulated Panels for Carbon Neutral Construction using Large Scale 3-D printing" and serves as the Graduate Supervisor to Jesse Bird on a MITACS funded project: Design Development for Prefabricated Building Components using Nano/Microfibrillated Cellulose (NMFC). She was an investigator on the Urbandale Centre for Home Energy Research project which included funding from Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Ontario Research Fund, Urbandale Construction and many local sponsors. She is a strong advocate for healthy materials in design and construction, resilience and endorses a hands-on approach to experiential learning of architecture and making.
