Biography

I received my PhD in 2012 from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) for the design of an active deployable tensegrity structure. From 2012 to 2014, I joined Princeton University as Postdoctoral Researcher for the Form-Finding Lab. Since January 2015, I am an Assistant Professor at Department of Civil, Architectural & Environmental Engineering at the University of Miami.

Research Interests

Tensegrity structures; adaptive, sensory and active structures; form finding and analysis of structures; structural design and optimization; space engineering and construction; resilience and sustainability; and computer-aided engineering
