Hana Mori Böttger teaches physics, design, structural analysis, construction materials, integrated design and international development courses for architecture students. She has developed and directs the Architectural Engineering Minor program, and a thesis project-based Honors program for exceptional ARCD majors. She completed a Master of Architecture (2002) and a Master of Science in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials (2000) at the University of California, Berkeley. Hana's research interests involve low-cost, low-carbon engineering techniques, such as the use of inexpensive fabric for seismic strengthening of adobe block walls, allowing much higher energy dissipation and inherent warning mechanisms during seismic activity.
