Researcher

Professor Nina Amenta

Amenta is a professor and chair of Computer Science at UC Davis and is part of the Visualization and Graphics Research Group. She works in computational geometry, using discrete geometry to develop algorithms for problems in areas like computer graphics and simulation. Her recent research has focused on the construction of good models of 3D objects from clouds of points, improvements in the construction of basic geometric structures, and visualization for computational biology. She is the recipient of an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship and an NSF CAREER award.

Professor Rajeevan Amirtharajah

Prof. Amirtharajah’s research activities focus on the development and implementation of electronic systems which are powered by energy harvested from their environment. This includes the conversion of incident light (solar energy harvesting) and environmental mechanical vibrations into electrical form, power electronics to generate stable supply voltages, and load circuits which consume less than one milliwatt.

Professor Venkat Anantharam

He received his B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, 1980, a M.S. in EE from UC Berkeley, 1982, a M.A. in Mathematics, UC Berkeley, 1983, a C.Phil in Mathematics, UC Berkeley, 1984 and a Ph.D. in EE, UC Berkeley, 1986. Prior to joining the faculty of EECS in 1994, he was a member of the faculty at Cornell University.

Nicholas R. Anderson Ph.D.

As director of informatics research, Anderson will develop his own program of research into the effective uses of biomedical data, information and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making. Because informatics is at the core of many transformative efforts in health care, Anderson’s expertise and leadership will help build the institution’s capacity to […]

Professor Edward Arens

Edward Arens, Ph.D., is Professor of Architecture at UC Berkeley. He was the Director of the Center for Environmental Design Research, which assists faculty, students, and others interested in research focusing on the design and planning of the built environment. Professor Arens is currently the Director of the Center for the Built Environment, a National Science Foundation-sponsored industry/university cooperative research consortium centered at UC Berkeley.

Professor David M. Auslander

David M. Auslander is Professor of the Graduate School, Mechanical Engineering Department, University of California, Berkeley. He has also served as Associate Dean and Acting Dean of the College of Engineering. He has interests in dynamic systems and control. His research and teaching interests include mechatronics and real time software, bioengineering, and mechanical control.

Dr. Bevan Baas

Dr. Baas’ research interests are in the algorithms, architectures, arithmetic, circuits, and VLSI design for high-performance, energy-efficient, and area-efficient computation with strong consideration of the challenges and opportunities of future fabrication technologies. In 2003, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Davis as an Assistant Professor. He currently supervises research for 13 graduate students and is now an Associate Professor.

Professor Zhaojun Bai

Dr. Bai’s primary research interests include numerical algorithm design, analysis and software engineering for solving large-scale computational problems in science and engineering. He is one of developers of LAPACK, a software library for solving the most common problems in numerical linear algebra and is designed to supersede LINPACK and EISPACK. His current research work focuses on synergistic activities in designing and implementing numerical linear algebra algorithms for emerging computing environments and user communities in computational science and engineering.

Aaron Bair M.D., M.Sc.

Dr. Bair is currently the director of emergency medicine simulation training and disaster preparedness for the Department of Emergency Medicine. His research interests are focused on procedural competency and computational modeling (patient flow and surge capacity). He is the medical director for the Center for Virtual Care and interim medical director for the Center for Health and Technology.

Professor Ruzena Bajcsy

For pioneering researcher Ruzena Bajcsy, fostering cutting-edge technology to improve people’s lives is a noble challenge. Dr. Bajcsy took the helm at CITRIS in November 2001, after devoting more than 30 years of her life to research in the fields of robotics, artificial intelligence and machine perception. Bajcsy’s credentials reach across the traditionally discrete fields of neuroscience, applied mechanics and computer science. She is a member of both the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine, a distinction few people can match.
