Kay Rogage

Senior Lecturer in Digital Living, Northumbria University

Dr. Kay Rogage is a Senior Lecturer in Digital Living in the School of Computing Information Sciences at Northumbria University and an active member of Northumbria’s BIM Academy Research Team.

She is an applied researcher who’s work spans across the disciplines of computer science and the built environment. Kay’s research focuses on the developing technical solutions that allow data integration across technologies enabling the interoperability of building models to overcome the technical barriers around data exchange in the built environment.

As a software developer in industry predominantly working in the digital construction sector, Kay has integrated her practical industry knowledge with academic research on a number of industry collaborations to overcome issues around disparate, fragmented data sets such as BIM data and sensor data, for developing knowledge from the data to support building operation and improve occupant well-being.

Her work involves using machine learning techniques to explore feature selection and pattern matching across data to improve data retrieval and interoperability.
