I am senior in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department pursuing the “Engineering and the Liberal arts track” and interested in further studying architecture from a more quantitative background. The work that I do with Professor Adriaenssens consists of my senior thesis project. Through the flexibility of my degree track, as well as the program of the Form Finding lab, the senior thesis allows me to combine my interests in various areas such as art, architecture, engineering and computational design. Thus, my intent is to use this multidisciplinary background to approach questions that lie at the intersection of the fields and ultimately to explore how the answers to such questions can translate to practical applications of engineering and design to help solve issues of concern in our society. My work in concerned mainly with adaptable structures, whose transformation in response to stimuli, has a functional role.
