I am currently a senior undergraduate studying civil engineering with a structural engineering concentration. I have worked with Prof. Segal on research, a summer camp, a pavilion project, and a conference workshop. My research project with Prof. Segal explored the potential use of mushroom biomaterial for structural applications. The idea was to develop preliminary small-scale rectangular and dome-shaped models to demonstrate the potential of up-scaling the models to eventually create a large-scale mushroom dome structure. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to develop and teach a lesson plan for Prof. Segal’s Structural Engineering Summer Camp that I assisted him with for two summers. Also, being able to assist with the Cast & Place pavilion was a fun and unique experience; the best part was the hands-on preparation of the foundation for the formwork at the Governor’s Island site.
