Matt R. Bohm, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering
212 Sackett Hall
Dr. Bohm began research in the Engineering Design field as an undergraduate Mechanical Engineering student. The main theme of his research focuses on design information archival and reuse. Recently his work has explored artificial intelligence algorithms to support a new method of automated concept generation. He plans to continue research in the area of engineering design focusing on information data discovery and artificial intelligence based concept generation techniques.
