I first became involved in research in the field of structural art when looking for a senior thesis project that explored the interface between science and art during my time as an undergraduate student at Princeton. With Prof. Adriaenssens as my adviser, I explored curved-crease origami as an acoustic metamaterial in the interest of developing adaptable highway sound barriers. As a concentrator in Geosciences, I had previously studied computational geophysics, in which I learned about modeling waves. As follows, the research I did senior year was mainly focused on acoustic experiments that tested the effect of curved-crease geometries on the acoustics of spaces. Moving forward, I hope to continue to aid in the research and development of adaptable sound barriers using curved-crease origami designs and intend to contribute to the further stages of this project.
