My name is George Dickinson and I am a senior in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. I am from London, UK, and I some of my hobbies include playing the guitar, cycling, and sailing. I am also captain of the lightweight rowing team at Princeton for the 2022-2023 season which consumes most of my time outside of class. In civil engineering, my areas of interest include improving efficiency of construction and anything related to timber. For my thesis I will explore the stability of timber lamella structures during phases of construction to determine if this technique is viable at large scales. I will be applying this to a squinch structure which is inspired by traditional masonry vaulting techniques. I am excited to work with the Form Finding Lab to develop my skills in parametric modeling and finite element analysis and to see where this project takes me.
