Chin-Yi Cheng

I am a designer, engineer, computer scientist and cook. I love to switch between these roles and even play more than one of them at the same time. As part of a multidisciplinary research team at MIT Media Lab, I enjoy exploring new ideas to "compile" design, materials, interaction, digital fabrication, biology and molecular gastronomy; as an independent researcher, I focus on how to make designers and engineers interact with Artificial Intelligence in real-time; and as a cook, I always try to serve my family and friends the most delicious and creative dishes.
