BS, MS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Ph.D., Stanford University
Dr. Marcos Esterman received his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. His teaching interests are in product and process development, and systems engineering. He teaches students in Multi-Disciplinary Design, the Manufacturing and Management Leadership, and the Masters in Product Development Programs. Dr. Esterman is director of the Printer Research and Image Systems Modeling (PRISM) and the co-director of the Sustainable Print Systems Laboratories, which focus on the modeling of printer and imaging systems to support product architecture and business decisions. His research focuses on structured product development methods, sustainable printing, and print as a manufacturing process.
Prior to joining the RIT faculty, Dr. Esterman worked for Hewlett-Packard’s Imaging and Printing Division in Boise, Idaho. At HP, he held a variety of positions in manufacturing and R&D while concurrently conducting his Ph.D. research. His primary product focus was the Color LaserJet products and he supported the development teams that delivered the Color LaserJet 8500 and 9500 printers. His analysis work at HP enhanced design and product architecture decision-making. Marcos also worked as an x-ray tube development engineer at General Electric Medical Systems in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and he was a graduate of their Edison Engineering Training Program.
