Vinayak

Director

Vinayak Krishnamurthy is Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in December 2015. Before joining Texas A&M, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at Purdue University. Vinayak works at the interface of four disciplines: geometric modeling, human-computer interactions, artificial intelligence, and design research. The central objective of his research is to enable expression of design intent for idea generation during early phase conceptual design. To this end, his work involves development of new techniques in computer-aided design (CAD), geometry & image processing, information visualization for conceptual design, mobile & wearable interfaces for creativity support, computer-aided ergonomics, and AR/VR (augmented and virtual reality) interfaces for design. His previous work on gesture based shape conceptualization has also led to the commercial deployment of a mid-air virtual pottery application in collaboration with ZeroUI, a Cupertino-based software start-up.
