Thijs Roumen is PhD student at the Human Computer Interaction chair at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. His main research focus is Mobile Fabrication, with a focus on engineering of hardware and developing methods to make the sharing and reusing of 3D models more portable.
Prof. Daniel Ashbrook is Daniel Ashbrook is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen. His research focuses on helping non-experts understand and use digital fabrication technology.
Dr. Huaishu Peng is an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department and the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS) at the University of Maryland, College Park. Huaishu designs hardware and software systems to enable 3D modeling with interactive experiences and to manufacture functional objects with custom fabrication machines.
Dr. Xiang ‘Anthony’ Chen is assistant professor at the ECE Department in UCLA. His research interests include human-computer interaction, sensing and interaction techniques, intelligent user interfaces, and computational design and fabrication.
Jeeeun Kim is a PhD student at Computer Science and ATALS Institute CU Boulder. Her research focuses on the intersection of HCI, Fabrication, and AI. Investigating the role of humans and AI-powered fabrication machines, she develops a framework to facilitate fluid, collaborative, and direct interaction between humans and 3D printers.
Prof. Patrick Baudisch is full professor at the Human Computer Interaction chair of the Hasso Plattner Institute. His main interest is in the blending of computer science with the physical world we live in. On the one hand this relates to Digital Fabrication: how we can use computation to control the physical reality, and on the other hand Haptics for VR: how we can experience properties of the physical world while interacting in a virtual reality.
