Jessica Flores

I joined the Form Finding Lab in September 2018 to pursue a PhD in Civil Engineering. I earned my B.Arch with minors in Civil Engineering,  Mathematics, and Fine Arts at the University of Miami in May 2018. While there, I worked on several research projects in the Civil Engineering department, ranging from investigating the effects of micro and nanoscale particles on the material properties of cementitious materials, to investigating tensegrity systems and bending-active systems using dynamic relaxation and cell-based form finding. In the Form Finding Lab I hope to further explore ideas within the intersection of art, architecture, and structural engineering by working on the mechanics of curved creased origami systems.
