Yiyue Luo

I am a 3rd year PhD student in the Computational Design & Fabrication group (CDFG) at MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), advised by Professor Wojciech Matusik and Professor Tomas Palacios. Before joining MIT, I received my B. S. in Materials Science and Engineering at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I worked as an undergraduate research assistant in Professor John A. Roger's group from 2015 to 2017. My research interests are fabrication, smart textiles, and tactile sensing.
