Amanda Parkes, PhD
Bodega Algae
Amanda Parkes is a mechanical engineer and designer interested in the relationship of gesture, form, materiality, and computation in the context of hybrid physical-digital objects with a research focus on developing intuitive and investigative learning and design tools. She is currently the Chief Technology Officer at Bodega Algae, a developer of scalable algae photobioreactors whose closed continuous-flow reactors produce high-energy algal biomass for use in the production of biofuel. Amanda holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (Product Design) and a B.A. in Art History from Stanford University, and an M.S. in Media Arts and Sciences and a PhD from MIT.

She has developed exhibits at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, freelanced internationally in multimedia design, and developed installations and programs for the Science Museum in London and the the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.

Her work has been featured in various internationally recognized design and art awards including the ID Magazine Annual Design Review and the Prix Ars Electronica. She was named one of Mass High Tech's 'Women to Watch' for 2008.
