Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Emeritus
Roth is one of the founders of the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (the and is active in its development: currently, he serves as Academic Director. His design interests include organizing and presenting workshops on creativity, group interactions, and the problem solving process. Formerly he researched the kinematics, dynamics, control, and design of computer controlled mechanical devices. In kinematics, he studied the mathematical theory of rigid body motions and its application to the design of machines.
