Interdisciplinary Access: Experiences with DDF in Art + Engineering

Olivia enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts program at the SUNY New Paltz in 2014 and completed her M.F.A with honors in Painting and Drawing in 2016. During her studies at New Paltz, Olivia worked with Advanced Manufacturing and Digital Fabrication technologies as a graduate assistant to generate 3D printed product designs and prototypes. Olivia’s artistic interests in the study of light and 3D printing applications for product manufacturing and design led her to the Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The LRC is the world's leading center for lighting research and education—pioneering research in solid-state lighting, light and health, transportation lighting, energy, and plant pathology. During her studies there, Olivia was a research assistant working with 3D printable LED fixture design investigating polymer composite materials and 3D printing parameters for functionalized components that add visual design appeal in LED systems.

Currently, Olivia works as a full-time 3D Designer working on a range of projects from large trade show exhibits to 3D experiences, marketing, and retail design.
