Hi, my name is Chris. I'm a PhD candidate at Carnegie Mellon University. My advisors are Dr. Jon Cagan and Dr. Ken Kotovsky, and I'm currently researching design and problem-solving in dynamic scenarios. I recently completed my Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering.
I graduated from Fresno State in Spring 2012 with B.S. degrees in both Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, as well as a certificate in Co-Curricular Leadership Studies.
In addition to design methodology, my research interests include machine learning, STEM education, global optimization, and renewable energy.
