Cesar Torres

Bio

Cesar Torres is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at The University of Texas at Arlington. As a researcher, Cesar specializes in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) synthesizing new media and craft theory into the software and hardware design of creative tangible user interfaces. He has received multiple best paper awards at top venues within HCI and was recently awarded the NSF CRII Grant and UTA Interdisciplinary Research Grant. He serves as a regular program committee member for ACM Designing Interactive Systems (DIS), User Interface and Software Technology Symposium (UIST), Symposium on Computational Fabrication (SCF), and Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI). He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, and a B.A. in Art Practice and B.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University.
