Maryanne Wachter is a structural engineer interested in the design and construction of bending-active structures. She received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from Princeton University in 2011, and a Master of Science degree in Structural Engineering & Geo-mechanics from Stanford University in 2012. At Princeton, she completed a senior thesis on the design and construction of the Scunthorpe Sports Academy grid shell, advised by Dr Sigrid Adriaenssens. Upon graduation, she worked as a bridge designer with Buckland & Taylor from 2013 to 2015 on projects such as the erection engineering for the PATH Transit Hub at the World Trade Center in New York City. In addition to her work in bridge design, she has completed engineering internships with Leslie E. Robertson Associates and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Maryanne Wachter joined the NCCR Digital Fabrication in June 2015 as a PhD researcher.
