I am Mario Bergés. I spend most of my time conducting engineering research at Carnegie Mellon University, in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, where I am an Associate Professor.
I am interested in making our built environment more operationally efficient and robust through the use of information technologies, so that it can better deal with future resource constraints and a changing environment. In other words, I am interested in providing buildings, and other man-made structures that support our urban environment, with the ability to sense, plan and act autonomously, just as many living organisms do.
