Björn Hartmann

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley in the EECS department.

This is my (out of date) personal site - all current professional information is at

For historical purposes, my faculty application materials are still available. You may want to take a look at my papers&essays. I also build physical computing tools and projects from time to time. In a prior life I produced music and co-managed the record label Tuning Spork Records. By now, my artist bio is somewhat out of date. Some of my tracks and mixes are archived on the music page. I also dabble(d) in graphic design - past projects, mostly for record sleeve designs, are on the visuals page. I also edited Ambidextrous magazine, Stanford's journal of design. A few times a year I update my sparse blog and a reading list of books (since 2003). You may also want to take a look at my pictures on Flickr, bytesandpieces, a tumblelog, and protolab, a wiki of physical computing resources and tutorials I maintain.
