Valentina Sumini

Responsive Environments
  • Postdoctoral Associate

 Valentina Sumini is a Postdoctoral Associate and a Space Architect at MIT Media Lab in Responsive Environments. She develops design and architectures to sustain human life in extreme environments on Earth and enable human space exploration in Low Earth Orbit, on the Moon and Mars. 

Her research interests focuses on inventing new computational design methods for multi-performance habitats, soft-robotic prosthetics to enhance mobility and dexterity in microgravity, and construction techniques using in-situ resources.
