His research interests are centred on the development, investigation and implementation of sustainable and intelligent structures and material systems.
In addition, experiential teaching (and learning) has always been a focal point of his academic career.
Prior to joining the Lassonde School of Engineering, Butler was a research associate working at the Centre for Smart Infrastructure & Construction (CSIC) at the University of Cambridge and a cross-appointed group leader within the Lloyd’s Register Foundation program on data-centric engineering at the Alan Turing Institute.
