I received my PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in December 2012. I also have a MS from UC Berkeley and a BS from Stanford University in Mechanical Engineering.

My current research topic is looking at how technology can facilitate prototyping collaboration at a distance, and in how designers' use of physical and digital prototyping tools evolves over the course of a project.

I'm teaching an 8-week course in January/February 2013 for the HCID program: Creative Design
