Landolf Rhode-Barbarigos received his PhD in Structural Mechanics in August 2012 from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. As a member of the Applied Computing and Mechanics Laboratory (IMAC), his thesis focused on an active deployable tensegrity structure. From 2012 to 2014, he joined Princeton University as Postdoctoral Researcher at the Form-Finding Lab where he further investigated adaptive structures, form-finding and optimization methods in various research projects. Since January 2015, he is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil, Architectural & Environmental Engineering of the University of Miami. His research interests include lightweight structures, adaptive structures, form-finding and analysis of structures, structural design and optimization as well as computer-aided engineering.
