This is the home page of Joe Gattas. Joe is a civil engineer and Lecturer at the University of Queensland. His research involves using origami design techniques to invent and improve thin-walled structures and devices. There are numerous applications of origami shell structures, including deployable and modular housing; energy-absorbing packaging and barriers; and lightweight automobile and aircraft components. He is also interested in all aspects of design, making, and coding, and pursues a large number of projects that relate to one or all of them. He completed a Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Science at the University of Oxford in 2013. It was funded with the generous support of the John Monash Scholarship (2010).
