Rudy DieudonneGraduate Student

I am currently a PhD student within the department of Design Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I have a strong background in architectural design where I specialize in the design of educational facilities. My current research investigates the neurological effects of the standard classroom environment (acoustics & lighting) on primary school students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

I entered this doctoral program after completing a few years of professional practice as an architectural designer. Prior to entering the industry, I received my Master of Architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and my Bachelor of Design from the University of Florida.
