2014-15 Princeton ASCE Executive Board

Officers are elected at the beginning of the spring semester of each academic year.

Eric Shullman '15 - President


Eric is a senior in the Architecture & Engineering program. He grew up in Boca Raton, Florida, during the height of the real estate bubble in South Florida, an experience that left him fascinated with the built environment and the power that developers, 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 RCA in Mathey College. He also enjoys running, binge-watching comedy TV shows, and long walks on the decks of bridges. Although picking a favorite structure is incredibly hard, at the moment he is fascinated by the new super tall and slender buildings rising in midtown Manhattan, like 432 Park Avenue and 111 West 57th Street.

Denisa Buzatu '15 - Social Chair

Denisa Buzatu is a senior 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.

Jacqueline Li '16 - Projects Chair


Jackie is a junior in the architecture and engineering program. She grew up in Hong Kong and Shanghai and so has always been amazed at how engineers and architects work together to create such complex urban landscapes. You can usually find her hanging out in the CEE lounge, architecture studio, or on the cozy couches by the fireplace of Cloister Inn. Outside of class, she enjoys rowing for the women's lightweight crew team, as well as photographing for the Daily Princetonion and hence getting free entries to performances and shows. She wants to work on a wide range of structures in the future, but ultimately wants to help design and bring to life new or reinvented city-scapes. Her favourite cities are Hamburg, Rotterdam, and NYC, all with fascinating combinations of old and new buildings, ports, bridges, lakes, and parks.
