EDIT
SLoS | Architectural Engineer & Rock Climber: Emily Whiting
AIRED:
Meet Emily Whiting, a Ph.D. student at MIT who explores the intersection of architecture, structural engineering, and computer graphics. Using her studies of Gothic cathedrals and other 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. Emily is one of the scientists profiled in "The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers," a web-exclusive series from NOVA. Every two weeks, you'll have a chance to meet a new scientist or engineer. Watch their videos. Ask them questions. Find out how their surprising secret lives fuel their science, and vice versa. "The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers" is produced for NOVA by Seftel Productions. Visit pbs.org/nova/secretlife Exclusive funding for "The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers" is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.moreless
