César Torres, graduating this May with a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Designated Emphasis in New Media, has accepted a position at the University of Texas Arlington!

César will be joining the faculty in Fall 2019 as an Assistant Professor in Computer Science & Engineering and in Art & Art History!

César received dual degrees in Art Practice (B.A. '13) and Computer Science (B.S. '13) from Stanfrod University. At Berkeley, he joined Eric Paulos' Hybrid Ecologies Lab, which explores scientific research, design, and art through the innovation, development, deployment, and evaluation of novel physical devices and interactive systems that advance our computing culture, encourage broad participation by non-experts within science and engineering, improve human health and well-being, and provoke critical debate and inquiry concerning our existing and emerging technological society.

As a researcher, César specialize in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with interests in computational design, physical computing, digital fabrication, creativity support tools, and human-centered design. His thesis work explores how digital fabrication technologies can constrain, guide, or disrupt how we creatively work with physical and computational materials.

César is a recipient of the Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant, NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and the Adobe GEM Fellowhip.

Congratulations, César!
