Senior Research/Professional Interests:Theory and application of knowledge-based systems technology to engineering and science.
Personal Research Statement:I am currently working on the How Things Work project, to develop a computational environment for modeling and analysis of electro-mechanical devices. I am particularly interested in qualitative and quantitative reasoning techniques for reasoning about physical systems, techniques for model formulation and abstraction, representation of knowledge of the physical world, as well as application of such techniques to tasks such as design and verification.
I am also interested in reasoning with diagrams, and I have been working on application of diagrammatic reasoning to structural analysis problems.
