Our group aims to investigate the design spaces enabled by bio/nanotechnology. We collaborate with researchers around the world to co-envision the paradigms and tools needed to understand and exploit the intersection of design with life & materials sciences.
We research the intersection of bio/nano and the design spaces currently supported by Autodesk software such as manufacturing and the building industry. Equally important, we explore and drive the emergent design spaces enabled by bio/nano such as synthetic biology.
Today, the design paradigm behind programmable matter is one that can be gradually applied to concrete projects across a range of domains and metric scales. The cross-pollination across projects will help create a robust scale-free body of knowledge.
