William Babbitt, PhD


My name is William Babbitt, I recently completed a PhD in the Multidisciplinary Science program at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a concentration in Computer Science. My research investigates the design practices of indigenous artisans, translates their knowledge into software simulations, and evaluates these design tools in STEM education
