Hi, my name is Mario Bergés. I'm an Assistant Professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Carnegie Mellon University, since 2010. I spend most of my time conducting engineering research. Sometimes I blog about my research, but mostly I just write about whatever I find interesting. This blog is bilingual, not easily categorized and has a tendency to remain silent.
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.
When I am not busy leading a research lab (INFERLab) or teaching, I am either traveling, scouring the Internet for new information or enjoying/creating arts.
Feel free to browse through the other sections of this site if you are interested in learning more about myself or my work.
