(Aug '22) I am looking for motivated PhD students and postdocs with good programming skills to work in Computational Design.

Drop me an email if you are interested.



The CDL research activities are in the area of Computational Design and Synthesis of Mechanical Systems.

In particular, our research focuses on the development of new engineering models, representations, algorithms, and design semantics to enable systematic, and efficient design, analysis and manufacturing of engineering artifacts.

Research Assistantships may be available to highly qualified students.
