Product Director, Research Professor
Mercer Mass Timber, Washington State University
Todd is a design engineer working to advance product and policy development related to mass timber value chains. By aligning public research (WSU), development codes (City of Spokane), and building codes (State of Washington) with private investment for manufacturing supply chains, Washington and the greater Pacific Northwest are leading an integrated approach to modular mass timber market diffusion to address our housing, energy, and environmental crises. Todd’s career has been focused on addressing the complexities of these tectonic and technoeconomic challenges with a grounding in design methodologies applied not only to our traditional understanding of architecture and engineering of buildings, but also applied to investment across the entire mass timber value chain.
Todd is a vice chair of the WA State Building Code Council and a past president of the Spokane Plan Commission.
