Michael R. Doyle is an assistant professor at the Université Laval School of Architecture in the Faculty of Planning, Architecture, Art and Design. His main research and teaching interests revolve around: an information-theoretic understanding of the person and the milieu; computational techniques of abstraction in the articulation of architectural artefacts, including Big Data and machine-learning; and the interplay of mediacy and immediacy in perception and action in the built environment. At Laval, he directs the research (MSc/PhD) programmes in architecture and urban design. He is also regional representative of ACUUS.
