Louise Wallis

Current positions held

Deputy Director – Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood – University of Tasmania


Dr Louise Wallis has over 20 years’ experience at the School of Architecture and Design, University of Tasmania. Her teaching and research have revolved around several themes – architectural education through design/build projects and design studios, hardwood timber products and processing, materials and fabrication, collaborative design/ teamwork and architectural science.

She has both led, collaborated, and worked on nationally competitive grants related to architectural education and timber research. Louise typically designs and conducts mixed methods research collecting both qualitative (interviews, focus groups, surveys) and quantitative data. It is both her breadth of knowledge and working connections with the AEC industry, forestry and wood products sectors and the construction process that allows rich and deep insights and links from qualitative data sets. These both inform or respond to her teaching and supervision of PhD students.

Louise is a member of the Australian Timber and Construction Education Network (ATCEN) and Tasmanian Timber Forest and Forest Products Network (TFFPN).
