Biography Eric Poulos
Eric Paulos is an Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering Computer Science at UC Berkeley and faculty within the Berkeley Center for New Media. Previously, Eric held the Cooper-Siegel Associate Professor Chair at Carnegie Mellon University where he was faculty within the Human-Computer Interaction Institute. His body of work spans a broad range of research territory from robotics, urban computing, citizen science, design research, critical making, and new media art. Eric received his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from UC Berkeley but his real apprenticeship was earned through over two decades of explosive, excruciatingly loud, and quasi-legal activities with a band of misfits at Survival Research Laboratories. More info can be found on his website.
The encounter took place on Thursday January 22, 2015 at the CITRIS Invention Lab, Berkeley Center for New Media at the University of California, Berkeley. At the end of the session, Chris Myers (Lab Manager CITRIS Invention Lab) and Ambra Trotto (Studio Director Interactive Institute Umeå, Sweden) joined us in the encounter.
