Speaker

Dean Albert Pisano, Professor and Dean, UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering

On Sept. 1, 2013, Pisano joined the Jacobs School of as Professor and Dean. He holds the Walter J. Zable Chair in Engineering. (About the Vision, Mission and Goals of the Jacobs School.)

Pisano is a highly accomplished mechanical engineer who, in 2001, was elected to the National Academy of Engineering for contributions to the design, fabrication, commercialization, and educational aspects of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).

A self-described technology polymath, Pisano's research is driven by his passion for developing, mastering and advancing technologies in order to solve problems. One of Pisano's new projects is development of an inexpensive yet rugged sensor system that will predict landslides in the Philippines, a country where landslides are a deadly, national problem.

Robotics for Assisted Living

Robotics are increasingly becoming part of our lives, providing diverse benefits. However, that same technology captures information about us. This raises intriguing questions about whether that information should be stored, who and when it should be shared with, and if it should be shared at all.
