Education and Early Career
Yu-Chou studied civil and hydraulic engineering for his bachelor's and master's degrees. After working as a research assistant in academia and junior engineer and structural designer in the industry, he started his PhD research on design and fabrication of membrane shells in the architecture faculty at Delft University of Technology.
Yu-Chou has worked on the form-finding for shell structures, flat-to-doubly-curved mechanisms, as well as visualization of 2D tensor fields. Recently, he is utilizing parametrized surfaces for designing shell structures.
