Hi, I'm C├ęsar, a 2nd year CS PhD student at UC Berkeley and this is the site where I post my latest projects and experiments. I am currently advised by Eric Paulos and can be found at the Berkeley Center for New Media in Sutardja Dai Hall. My research deals with understanding the relationships between art and technology, and I am especially interested in New Media.

I recently received my BS in Computer Science and BA in Art Practice from Stanford University where I conducted research with the Stanford HCI Group and was advised by Scott Klemmer and Ranjitha Kumar in the CS Department, and Gail Wight in the Art and Art History Department.

I am also the coordinator for the weekly Berkeley Institute of Design Seminar Series. Email me if you'd like to present.

So, let's talk media. Send me a note at cearto (at) berkeley (dot) edu!
