Her research investigates the following question: How can the obsolenscence of the existing building stock be prevented using emerging digital technology available today? Deepika Raghu works with Big Data and Machine Learning methods to analyze existing buildings in cities to arrive at solutions for retaining high-value materials for future use. Her research observes various contexutal paradigms in the realm of circularity for the built environment in Europe and the Global South.
