Dr. Bo Zhu joins us here in the forest as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science. He hails from MIT, where he spent the past three years working with Professor Wojciech Matusik in the Computer Graphics Group and Computational Fabrication Group.

Dr. Zhu’s research interests span a wide gamut, from computer graphics to computational physics to robotics to 3d printing. His recent projects have included optimizing topology with thin, sparse features under physical constraints, interactive exploration of CAD model geometry and physical properties, and simulation of non-Newtonian fluids such as thick paints and melted cheese.

He will be teaching a course on computational physics in winter 2019.

Welcome, Bo!
