Adriana Schulz
  • Ph.D. Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018
  • M.Sc. Mathematics, National Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Brazil, 2011
  • B.Sc. Electronic and Computer Engineering, Federal University of Rio de Janiero, Brazil, 2008

This fall, Adriana Schulz joins the Allen School as an assistant professor. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship with the Computer Science and Artificial Language Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. As 3-D printers and industrial robots reshape manufacturing, Adriana designs tools that drive and democratize this new industrial revolution. She uses data-driven methods to create intelligent tools that make design more efficient and accessible, and real-time performance-driven methods for design based on functionality. She incorporates these ideas into interactive tools that allow design of complex functional mechanisms that require design and optimization of geometry, motion and control.

Adriana publishes actively at SIGGRAPH, the annual conference on computer graphics. Her work with CSAIL to develop a DIY robot design system called Robogami received press coverage in Wired, Engadget and Techcrunch.
