My name is Ameen Moshirfar and I am a senior in the Civil Engineering Department pursuing certificates in Architecture and Computer Science. I am from Salt Lake City, Utah, and I love rock climbing, pottery, and playing guitar. During the 2019-2020 school year, I will be working with Professor Sigrid Adriaenssens to study design and fabrication techniques of origami structures. The ultimate goal will be to arrive at a design that can function as an emergency shelter or off-grid home. Using origami simulators and finite element modeling, I will create a design that optimizes flat foldability, ease of deployment, and stability. I am excited to be a part of the Form Finding Laboratory, and work at what I see to be an intriguing intersection of Civil Engineering, Architecture, and Computer Science.
