Bio


Dylan Moore is a Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering performing research in the DesignX Lab supervised by David Sirkin and Larry Leifer. His research in engineering design adapts methods from psychology, acoustics, and cognitive science to design interactions between autonomous robots/vehicles, and pedestrians.

He received his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southern California in 2015 as a Rose Hills fellow and member of the IMPACT Laboratory supervised by Professor Yan Jin. He received a B.S. in Engineering Physics and B.A. in Music from the University of California, Berkeley in 2013, where he helped to develop Sense and Sensibility and Science, an interdisciplinary course on human rationality and how the tools of science can be used to improve individual and societal decisions. Dylan is a practicing choral and orchestral musician and has performed with a number of noted Los Angeles and Bay Area vocal and orchestral ensembles, most recently the San Francisco Fog City Singers.
