Creativity, Cathedrals, and Collaboration in Computer Science

Emily Whiting has a fondness for cathedrals, a proclivity not unrelated to her professional pursuit of computer graphics. As a PhD student at MIT, she worked with architects, an association that led to her affinity for cathedrals and their architectural geometry.

“Architecture was particular fascinating to me because it is a field that brings in so many different types of expertise,” says Whiting, an assistant professor and the newest addition to the Department of Computer Science. “You have the designers thinking about the beauty and the function of spaces, and you have the engineers who are worrying about whether this building will actually stand up.”
