Martijn Stellingwerff graduated with honourable mention at TU Delft, Faculty of Architecture, in 1993. He is assistant professor at the Form & Modelling Studies group at the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture.

From 2001 till 2004 he was also researcher at the Hogeschool voor Wetenschap & Kunst, Sint-Lucas Architecture in Brussels. At that time he was involved in several EU and locally funded projects: PICT, DYNAMO, AVOCAAD, {ACCOLADE}, USO BUILT. Martijn organised three conferences and participated in several books. He is active in the review committees of the EAEA, Knowing (by) Designing and eCAADe conferences. In 2005, he successfully defended his PhD dissertation on Virtual Context.

Currently Martijn is coordinating the minor on 'Advanced Prototyping' in collaboration with the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. He also teaches in the Masters elective course 'Ornamatics'. Together with his colleagues he established and manages the CAMlab as part of the Modelling Techniques workshop.
