Avi Robinson-Mosher is involved in the design of algorithms and software related to Desmond. He holds a B.S. in computer science and physics from Yale University; a M.Sc. in philosophy, policy, and social value from the London School of Economics; and a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University. As a graduate student in Ronald Fedkiw’s group, Avi developed a first-of-its-kind method for stably coupling fluid simulation to solids. Prior to joining DESRES, Avi was a postdoctoral fellow in Pamela Silver’s laboratory at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard Medical School, where he developed a coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulation system to model the binding behavior of fusion proteins with flexible linkages, and also engineered targeted fusion proteins directed against B-cell lymphoma and glioblastoma. In his free time, he enjoys reading, baking, and practicing archery.
