Saigopal Nelaturi



Job: scientist
Sai Nelaturi manages the Computation for Automation in Systems Engineering area in the System Sciences Lab at PARC. The area's goal is to research and develop next-generation representation, modeling, and analysis tools to support automation in systems engineering, design, and fabrication. Sai's research includes intelligent automation, digital manufacturing, geometric modeling, computational design, robotics, and spatial computing. He is the principal investigator for two DARPA-funded projects in transforming computational design to support advances in modern manufacturing, and leads PARC's commercial engagements in PARC's key digital manufacturing partnerships. Prior to joining PARC, he worked on mathematical foundations, computer representations, and algorithms for geometric problems in cyber-physical systems design at the Spatial Automation Laboratory, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Sai's earlier collaborations with General Motors Research and General Electric Research included applications in reconfigurable manufacturing, spatial planning, and non-destructive inspection. Dr. Nelaturi earned his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an M.Sc. in Manufacturing from the University of Bath in the U.K., and a B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from RV College of Engineering in Bangalore, India. Saigopal is an active musician and has released multiple collaborative albums.
