Bio:

Carlos is a research manager at the Bio/Nano/Programmable Matter Group at Autodesk Research. Formed three years ago, Carlos leads a group that investigates the design spaces enabled by matter programming across domains and scales by collaborating with researchers around the world to co-envision the paradigms and tools needed to establish a robust scale-free body of knowledge of design.

Carlos is an interdisciplinary designer with more than 14 years of combined experience in domains such as design tools for 2D and 3D modeling, learning, GIS, risk management, network service brokerage, web search experience, online emergent social phenomena, and more recently systems/synthetic biology.

Carlos earned a Master of Science in Information Networking from Carnegie Mellon. He holds a B.Sc. in Electronics and Communications from ITESM Campus Monterrey (Mexico). Carlos has also studied systems biology at Columbia University in New York, and telecommunications at the Institute National des Telecommunications in Evry, France.
