As the director of research at FATHOM, Carlo Quiñonez coordinates internal and external research projects at the forefront of advanced manufacturing. He has 20 years of experience in additive manufacturing, prototyping, product design, and electrical and mechanical engineering. After receiving his doctorate in biology from the prestigious California Institute of Technology, Quiñonez focused on hardware development and joined a product design studio that built bespoke lighting systems. Eventually, his path led him back to science as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California, San Diego, where he developed 3D-printable scientific instrumentation for microfluidic experiments. Prior to joining FATHOM, Quiñonez worked at Autodesk Research in the Bio/Nano/Programmable Matter Group, developing tools for bioprinting and contributing to Project Cyborg, a cloud-based platform of design tools for life sciences.
