Between 2012 and 2019 he was, as guest researcher and guest lecturer, connected to the architecture’s faculty of the TU Delft, where he earned a doctorate (Dr.-Ing.) in 2019. Since 2016 he has been working as a visiting lecturer at the department of architecture at the University of Siegen.

His main areas of research include: fundamentals of architectural design, design theory and the architectural history of the nineteenth and the twentieth century with a focus on the various discourses on space (space formation).and construction (tectonics).
