Wayne Li, a professor in the School of Industrial Design, and Chris Bartlett, a master's student in the School, share a love of automotive mechanics and are both trained artists.

So it is no surprise that when Li was looking for someone to help build an automotive lab Bartlett jumped at the chance. “I literally chased him down, introduced myself and passed off my resume to him and he hired me,” Bartlett says in an article in the Georgia Tech Alumni magazine.

The pair are featured in the latest issue of the magazine. They are among six student-teacher pairs – Dynamic Duos -- illustrating how outstanding teachers and pupils can inspire each other.

Bartlett in the article says the experience “showcases Li’s skills as a professor and Tech’s emphasis on collaboration.”

Li and Bartlett have built the GM Human-Machine Interaction Lab sponsored by General Motors that envisions cars of the future, including autonomous ones. Their research is underway in the lab at the College of Design.

Li said, the lab “allows us to work with students here at Tech to envision how the cars of the future, including autonomous ones, will be designed.”
