I am Ardavan Bidgoli, a computational designer, roboticist, and machine learning researcher. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Ph.D. in Computational Design. My research concerns the interfaces that enable designers and creative users to interact with ML-based computational design and robotic fabrication tools.
I am the lead instructor of the Introduction to Machine Learning in Design at CMU School of Architecture. My industry partnerships span various research and product teams at AEC-Tech companies, including the Generative Components team at Bentley Systems and Autodesk’s OCTO team at Pier9 and BUILD space facilities.
