Dr. Morkos' research focuses on the intersection of complex system design and manufacturing, employing AI-driven computational representation and reasoning tools. His primary investigation in engineering design delves into the fundamental "how" and "why" aspects of the design process, addressing the lack of formal computational support essential during the early stages of engineering design. In Design research, Dr. Morkos develops AI computational representation and reasoning models. These models support designers in comprehending, analyzing, synthesizing, and designing complex systems, enhancing their capabilities through AI-infused insights. In manufacturing, Dr. Morkos strives to forge formal computational bridges between design elements, such as system requirements, and computer-aided design, which significantly influences the manufacturing process. Transformer models and text/image encoders stand as instrumental tools in achieving this synergy, seamlessly translating abstract design concepts into practical manufacturing directives. The overarching objective of his research is to fundamentally reshape our comprehension and utilization of system presentations and computational reasoning capabilities. This realignment serves to facilitate the development of system models that, in turn, enable engineers and project planners to make well-informed decisions with heightened intelligence.
