Davoud Mozhdehi (Chemistry, SU)

Yves Michel (Design, SU)

Yves Michel’s current area of interest is in the emerging field of Biodesign, at the intersection of design, biology and technology. He has worked as an industrial designer for companies and design studios in the United States and Canada such as Safety 1st, Reebok, BRP/Bombardier Recreational Products, Adidas, and CCM Hockey. In 2020, he established the award-winning multifaceted Studio YAMi Creative reflecting his experience as a conceptual designer and artist. He currently teaches industrial design in SU’s School of Design.

Yves Michel will present his work from the lab branch of Studio YAMi Creative, Symbiosis Project.  From biomimicry to synthetic biology, the aim of his transdisciplinary research is to design and biofabricate products by finding alternative applications to emergent technologies. To explore novel near & far future design solutions and aesthetics through a speculative design framework.

Davoud Mozhdehi (Dave Moz) is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry at Syracuse University. He obtained his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of California, Irvine in 2015. He then moved to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University as a postdoctoral associate at NSF-funded Research Triangle MRSEC. In 2018, he started his independent career at Syracuse University. Dave is a member of The Bioinspired  Institute at Syracuse University. Research specializations: bioinspired materials, macromolecular chemistry, protein-based materials, and post-translational modifications.

The Bio Art Mixer was initiated by Heidi Hehnly (Biology, SU) and Boryana Rossa (Film and Media Arts, SU) in collaboration with the Canary Lab and Bioinspired Institute and is a fundamental element of the Bio-Art Research Coalition of Syracuse
