Professor | Carnegie Mellon University



Erica Fuchs' research focuses on the development, commercialization and global manufacturing of emerging technologies and national policy in that context. Fuchs is currently leading Carnegie Mellon University's College of Engineering “moonshot” on national technology strategy in critical technologies, supply chains and infrastructure – an initiative across CMU’s schools of engineering, computer science and the Heinz College. Over the past decade, Fuchs has played a growing role in national and international efforts around technology policy, including being one of 23 participants in the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology workshop that led to the creation of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership and serving on the expert group that supported the White House in the 2016 Innovation Dialogue between the U.S. and China.
