Dr Johannes Alwi Wibisono Dimyadi



Johannes has many years of industry experience in software design and development, particularly for applications in the domain of Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Facilities Management (AEC/FM). He is also experienced in the prescriptive and performance-based compliant design of buildings with an emphasis on fire safety.

Research | Current

Johannes' main research interest is in finding practical technical solutions to problems in the built environment with a particular focus on occupant safety, compliance auditing, and compliant design processes.
