José is the Lab Manager for the Architectural Conservation Lab and Research Associate for the Center for Architectural Conservation within the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation. His research focuses on the conservation of acoustical materials and the integration of digital tools for reconstructing Beaux-Arts buildings. His technical expertise is grounded in data management, web development, and 3D modelling for historic structures.
José holds a Master of Science degree in Historic Preservation with a concentration in Architectural Conservation and a BA in urban design and architecture studies with a double minor in computer science and mathematics from New York University. His graduate thesis investigated the material, acoustical, and mechanical properties of Guastavino acoustical tile, which he recently presented at the Association for Preservation Technology International (APTI) conference. He recently completed a virtual reconstruction of McKim, Mead & White's original Pennsylvania Station, a project that received a Stanford White Award from the Institute of Classical Art & Architecture in 2020.
