Carlos Olguin heads the Bio/Nano/Programmable Matter Group at Autodesk Research. Formed three years ago, Carlos leads the 18-member group investigating the design spaces enabled by matter programming across domains and scales by collaborating with researchers around the world to co-envision the paradigms and tools needed to establish a robust scale-free body of knowledge of design.

Carlos is an interdisciplinary designer with more than 13 years of combined experience in domains such as design tools for 2D and 3D modeling, learning, GIS, risk management, network service brokerage, web search experience, online emergent social phenomena, and systems/synthetic biology. Carlos holds an MS in Information Networking from Carnegie Mellon and a B.Sc. in Electronics and Communications from ITESM Campus Monterrey (Mexico).

Carlos has also studied telecommunications at the Institute National des Telecommunications in Evry, France, and taken accredited courses in Systems Biology at the University of Gothenburg and Columbia University.
