ARL participants come from design, mechanical engineering, information science, and allied fields. PhD students are awarded tuition and living stipends. Bachelors and Masters students are rarely offered financial support but may earn credit (3-4 hrs/wk = 1cr) through Green's sections of HCD 4010/6020 form, MAE 4900/6900 form, and IS 7900. Students interested in joining the lab are encouraged to first take a course with Professor Green.

Keith Evan Green | Director, ARL
is the Jean and Douglas McClean Professor of Human Centered Design (HCD) at Cornell University. He is also professor in Cornell's Sibley School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE) and Graduate Field member in Information Science
(IS). Green's Architectural Robotics Lab (ARL) imagines rooms and their furnishings as robots that enable, support, and augment inhabitants. More practically, the ARL designs robot-rooms and study how these rooms partner with people and what people make of them and with them. Green’s book Architectural Robotics: Ecosystems of Bits, Bytes and Biology (MIT Press) defines this emerging field at the interface of design, robotics, HCI, and psychology. A registered architect and Senior Member of IEEE, Green earned B.A., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Green researched or taught for extended periods in Barcelona, Milan, Auckland, and Delft. (Green's homepage)

Serena Guo | PhD Info Sci
is a PhD Information Science student at Cornell. She is interested in blending the physical world with the virtual world through multimedia, including mixed reality, tangible mediums, digital arts/narratives, to create innovative spatial experience. Her main goal is to bring human physicality into the digital world - to foster empathy in our living environment. She has worked in AR/VR companies and architectural design firms before entering the PhD program. Serena holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture at Hong Kong University and an M.Arch degree at Columbia University with an honor award for excellence in design. She enjoys exploring (cities, nature, books) and creating (design, art, food).

Paulina Villcreces Deanna Kocher | PhD MAE
a PhD MechE student at Cornell. She has a unique background in integrated engineering, arts, and sciences (IDEAS) from Lehigh University which focused on mechanical engineering, product design, and child psychology. She also spent an extra year of study focused on STS (Science, Technology, and Society) and child development, where she developed a passion for understanding the impact of different technologies on child development. In the lab, her goal is to develop "productive play robots" supporting the social and intellectual development of children. She believes that the changing landscape of parenting makes beneficial technologies not only relevant, but necessary. Outside the lab, she trains regularly in shotokan karate, is an avid fantasy reader, and enjoys hiking with her dog. Deanna was awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)

Elena Sabinson | PhD HCD
is a PhD student at Cornell in Design + Environmental Analysis. At Drexel University, where Elena received her MS in Interior Design, Elena was an Assistant Teaching Professor. Prior to grad school at Drexel, Elena earned a BA from Binghamton University, where she studied Philosophy and Creative Writing. Elena is particularly fascinated with emerging technologies and how to implement these new interactions so that they increase empathy. She hopes to contribute to a new ethical landscape of human robot interaction (HRI), and explore the use of biological materials and digital design practices in creative and innovative ways.

Bruno Tassari | MEng MAE
is a Cornell MEng student studying Mechanical Engineering with a focus in design. During his undergrad, Bruno majored in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Business for Engineers. His interests include mechanical design, robotics, management, and human-centered design. In addition to ARL, Bruno is the Team Lead of Combat Robotics @ Cornell (CRC) and is an instructor at Rev: Ithaca Startup Works. His hobbies include running, watching anime, reading manga, playing video games, and drawing. When prompted, he will crack hilarious jokes.
