Hello! I'm a graduate student at MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms
Right now, the distribution of the world's fabrication is similar to the distribution of wealth: a small number of large firms do the vast majority of it. This means that less of us are able to participate in the design of our daily lives, and the systems that connect them. I'm working on technologies that allow smaller businesses to successfully participate in the manufacturing economy.
This means making tiny factories, instead of tiny machines.
To get at this, I'm working on hardware and software systems for process assembly.
So, hardware controllers and sensors:
And networks to connect them:
With software for programming and controlling distributed systems:
I'm also working with Jens Dyvik to develop parametric hardware tools.
And I'm interested in developing novel actuators to further drop the cost of robotic systems:
