I am currently a senior in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. My concentration is Structural Engineering with a certificate in Architecture and Engineering. My interests lie in sustainable engineering and vernacular architecture. I have the pleasure of working with Professor Sigrid Adriaenssens and her team at the Form Finding Lab on my senior thesis which aims to explore bamboo grid-shell formwork. I aim to present a viable and novel design for a bamboo grid-shell shelter that can be incorporated with renewable energy to provide a holistically sustainable engineered solution in Cali, Colombia.
