Assistant Research Professor of Architecture
Director of Robotics and Digital Fabrication Applied Research and Training Unit
Daniel Eisinger is a graduate of the career-change Master of Architecture program at Ball State University. He also holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Taylor University and has over eight years’ experience working in the software sector. This background has contributed significantly to his interests in digital design and fabrication and informs an architectural approach with a computational design emphasis.
Daniel’s recent research in architectural robotics at Ball State has led to publication and the opportunity to present his work internationally. His current research as faculty is aimed at making architectural robotics more accessible to students of architecture. Future research will build on previously published research related to the impact of human interaction on computational form generation.
In addition to his current role as an instructor in the Architecture Department, Daniel also serves as manager of digital fabrication operations for the College of Architecture and Planning. This includes making sure equipment including CNC routers, 3D printers and the school’s KUKA robotic arm stay online as well as managing the team of graduate assistants that run the equipment on a daily basis. His efforts have also led to the development of a support website for digital fabrication processes and tools.
Daniel is an Indiana native with most of his family located in Indianapolis. He spent over a decade living abroad as a child and speaks fluent German and Turkish.
