Bio
I am an assistant professor at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, where I am a member of the Computer Graphics Group (GRAIL). My research focuses on computational design for manufacturing. As 3D printers and industrial robots begin to reshape manufacturing, my goal is to define design tools that will drive and democratize this new industrial revolution. I use data-driven methods to create intelligent tools that make design more efficient and accessible, and real-time performance-driven methods for design based on functionality. I incorporate these ideas into interactive tools that allow design of complex functional mechanisms that require design and optimization of not only geometry, but also motion and control.
