2013-14 Princeton ASCE Executive Board

As of January 2013, Princeton ASCE has decided to transition to a spring/fall officer term instead of fall/spring. The senior officers elected in January 2012 will continue in their original positions while new officers take on increased responsibilities.

Ellen Tung '14 - President

Ellen is a senior from Hong Kong. Her dad is a Civil Engineering professor, but she swears that that did not influence her major choice in any way! She actually came to Princeton intending to study mechanical engineering, but she fell in love with the concept of designing structures and immediately changed her major. Apart from ASCE, Ellen dances with Triple 8. Her favorite structure is Felix Candela's Los Manantiales at Xochimilco.

Ellen Tung

Jett Stearns '15 - Treasurer

Jett is a junior in the Structural Engineering track from Palos Verdes Estates, California, near Los Angeles. He has always had a fascination with buildings and is proud to be a member of the Civil Engineering Department. He likes to follow current construction projects around the world and wants to explore the fields of urban planning and transportation systems. In addition to photographing structures, his interests include playing the saxophone, golfing, and snowboarding. On campus, he is also involved in the Animal Welfare Society. His favorite structures include the Golden Gate Bridge and the Shanghai World Financial Center.

Emily Stinson '14 - Secretary/Social Chair

Emily is a senior from Orinda, California, which is about half an hour east of San Francisco. In high school, she was very interested in architecture. Having grown up in a family that liked to take trips abroad, she fell in love with European architecture and after visiting Spain, idolized Antoni Gaudi. Now she dreams of being a structural designer and is currently following the Structural Track of the Civil and Environmental Department. She is also interested in the environmental side and is pursuing a certificate in Sustainable Energy. On campus, she plays club tennis, is on the Ghana team of Engineers Without Borders, and is a sophomore officer of Charter. Her favorite structure is Gaudi's Casa Batlló.

Denisa Buzatu '15 - Social Chair

Denisa Buzatu is a junior from Romania, studying in the Architecture and Engineering track. While her freshman year she had no intention to major in CEE, she soon became fascinated by the extends to which civil engineering and architecture can transform not only the fabric of a space, but also its culture and politics, so she decided to take part in this transformation. Outside her engineering and architecture classes, she is fascinated (read obsessed) by France and has spent her last 2 summers in Paris and Aix-en-Provence, reason for which she is also pursuing a French Language and Culture Certificate. Recently, she became interested in sustainability and has been working on optimization of adaptive shading modules as part of an Andlinger Center project. While her favorite structure changes basically every day, Institute du Monde Arabe by Jean Nouvel is constantly up there.

Mariam Wahed '14 - Social Activities

Mariam Wahed is a senior in the Structural Engineering track who hails from Eugene, Oregon, that incredibly well known state located between California and Washington. Although Mariam originally planned to concentrate in Comparative Literature, she discovered a passion for civil engineering when she took "Bridges" during her freshman year (and recommends the class to other A.B. students with perhaps too much enthusiasm). Mariam is mostly fascinated by concrete structures - thin-shell concrete structures specifically - and her favorite structure is Felix Candela's wondrous Chapel Lomas de Cuernavaca. When she is not busy catching up with all her CEE course requirements, Mariam can be found trying to fulfill her nerdy humanities alter ego at book club, running through the wild like a typical Oregonian, or unwinding at Yoga Above.

Erman Eruz '14 - Project Chair

Erman Eruz is a senior in the Civil Engineering and Architecture Program also pursuing an Urban Studies Certificate. Having grown up in Turkey's largest city Istanbul, a megacity which also has a tremendous history spanning thousands of years, he is interested in everything that is related to buildings, cities and architecture. Because of this genuine interest, he frequently gets neck cramps for always looking up at buildings wherever he goes. Even though it is hard for him to name one, his favorite structure is quite possibly the great Hagia Sophia, as it always manages to create a captivating feeling regardless of how many times one enters it.

Eric Shullman '15 - Webmaster

Eric is a junior in the Architecture & Engineering program. He grew up in Boca Raton, Florida, during the height of the building boom in South Florida, an experience that left him fascinated with the built environment and the power that architects and engineers have to imagine and create environments. When not in the EQuad or the architecture studio, he can be found spending time with the not-nearly-as-cool ORFE majors as he pursues a certificate in Engineering & Management Systems. Outside of class, he plays trumpet with the Princeton University Jazz Ensemble, and is an ARCA and college council representative in Mathey College. He also enjoys running, binge-watching comedy TV shows, and long walks on the decks of bridges. His favorite structures are the Miami Marine Stadium and the 1111 Lincoln Road parking garage in South Beach (even though Professor Billington would say it’s not structural art).

Jen Kim '14
Jen Kim is a senior from Havertown, Pennsylvania who is alternately studying Structures and Environmental Engineering. She likes everything, but more than anything wants to build things in developing countries. Jen lives in the E-Quad, but can sometimes be spotted singing with Umqombothi, playing Ultimate frisbee, breakdancing, or hanging out with the squirrels on top of Little Hall. Her current favorite structure is the Burj al Arab in Dubai.

Jarred Mihalik '14

Jarred is a senior at Princeton hailing from San Diego, on the Structural Engineering track. He's really enjoying the civil engineering classes he has been able to take so far, and looks forward to more advanced design in the future. His hope is to one day work designing large scale structures or perhaps the space elevator. His favorite structure is the San Diego - Coronado Bay Bridge, which he crossed every few weeks growing up to visit relatives, and partly inspired him to switch to CEE. Besides CEE, he is also interested in studying Chinese, which led to him doing PiB the summer after freshman year, and plans on going to Hong Kong to study abroad during junior year. He also is part of Manna Christian Fellowship on campus, and writes music reviews for The Prince's "Intersections" blog as well as WPRB.
