Subject

Dr.-Ing. Larissa Born is deputy head of the Institute of Textile and Fiber Technologies at the University of Stuttgart.

Her research includes the integration of local hinges and pneumatic actuators in fibre-reinforced plastics for the development of adaptive, movable systems. In 2020, she completed her doctoral thesis in this field with distinction. The results of her research have been honoured several times, for example for the biologically inspired façade shading systems flectofin® and Flectofold.
