Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Chantelle Niblock integrates her research into her teaching, focusing on curriculum development and innovative teaching methods, especially in early architectural education. Currently, she supervises four PhD projects centred on digitally interpreting built heritage, two of which are co-supervised with archaeology.

Chantelle explores the application of emerging technologies in design studios and as research tools to improve accessibility to architectural archives. She has collaborated with museum professionals in the Whitney Museum of American Art and the National Museum NI to digitize and interpret image-based artefacts and physical architectural models from their collections. Her achievements include receiving the AHRC Doctoral Award in 2008 and winning the prestigious Paul Mellon Digital Project Grant. She has also been a recipient of the Queen’s University of Belfast Teaching in Innovation award.

Before joining Queen's University Belfast in 2018, Chantelle  was a Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Nottingham for eight years, where she directed the MArch Digital Architecture and Tectonics course. During her PhD at the Glasgow School of Art, she explored the impact of digital media on architects' design processes through a comparative study of expert architects and novice architecture students. Her research has been published in renowned international journals such as Design Studies, Frontiers of Architectural Research, and the British Journal of Educational Technology.
