About the Editors

Patsy Wang-Iverson is Vice President for Special Projects at the Gabriella and Paul Rosenbaum Foundation. Introduced to origami as a child by her mother, her personal interest in origami merged in recent years with her work in helping to improve students' interest in and success with mathematics. She co-organized, with Eileen Tan and Benjamin Tan, the 2010 Fifth International Meeting on Origami in Science, Mathematics and Education (5OSME) plus a Folding Convention (PLUS!) at the Singapore Management University in Singapore.

Robert J. Lang has been an avid student of origami for some forty years and is now recognized as one of the world's leading masters of the art. He is one of the pioneers of the cross-disciplinary marriage of origami with mathematics and organized the 2006 Fourth International Meeting on Origami in Science, Mathematics, and Education at Caltech. He has consulted on applications of origami to medical devices, air-bag design, and space telescopes, is the author or co-author of twelve books and numerous articles on origami and lectures widely on the connections between origami, mathematics, science, and technology.

Mark Yim is a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Previously, he was a Principal Scientist at the Palo Alto Research Center (formerly Xerox PARC). His group studies modular self-reconfigurable robots and has demonstrated robots that can transform into different shapes, jump, ride tricycles, climb stairs, poles and fences, manipulate objects and reassemble themselves. Collaborative work with researchers at Harvard, MIT and Berkeley include robotic self-folding origami. He has authored over 100 journal and conference papers and over 40 patents on topics ranging from robotics and videogame feedback devices to education and robotic performance art.
