Chukwuemeka Vincent Chukwuemeka, PhD is an architect, a multi-disciplinary designer, and an urban researcher with an international academic and professional background. Chukwuemeka was a recipient of 2021-2022 Princeton-Mellon/PIIRS Postdoctoral Fellowship in architecture, urbanism, and the humanities. He has taught and critiqued design studios at schools of architecture in Princeton University, KU Leuven in Belgium, ETH Zurich in Switzerland, and DIA Dessau in Germany. He has also led the design and development of several projects in Nigeria. Chukwuemeka obtained his Doctor of Architecture (PhD) degree with KU Leuven’s Interfacultarie Raad voor Ontwikkelingssamenwerking (IRO) full doctoral scholarship, awarded to outstanding international scholars in Belgium. He obtained Master of Arts in architecture degree from Hochschule Anhalt (Dessau-Bauhaus Campus), and graduated with Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) Preis, awarded for outstanding achievements of international students at German universities. He also obtained Bachelor of Science in architecture degree from Imo State University in Nigeria, where he graduated as the valedictorian. Chukwuemeka’s broader research interest is on the intersection of emergent urban spatial dynamics and the behavioral foundations of environmental design, planning, and public policy. Currently at Princeton University’s Kahneman-Treisman Center for Behavioral Science and Public Policy within the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA), he is exploring the applications of behavioral science tools to reimagine the design, development, uses, and management of sanitation spaces and infrastructures, and specifically, the architectural reinvention of public toilets.
