Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers

Emily Whiting: Architectural Engineer

Video duration: 7:16

Currently working toward her Ph.D. at MIT, Emily Whiting explores the intersection of architecture, structural engineering, and computer graphics. Using her studies of very old buildings, Emily creates animations that help guide the efficient and effective creation of new buildings. When not thinking about megabytes and concrete, Emily scales really, really tall things - she's a rock-climber.
