Bernie Roth

Bernie Roth researches the kinematics, dynamics, control, and design of computer-controlled mechanical devices. In kinematics, he studies the mathematical theory of rigid body motions and its application to the design of machines. His design interests include organizing and presenting workshops on creativity, group interactions, and the problem solving process. In addition he is one of the founders of the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (the d.school) and is active in its development; currently, he serves as Interim Director.
