Ronald Fearing is a professor in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at University of California, Berkeley, which he joined in January 1988. He was Vice-Chair for Undergraduate Matters from 2000-2006. His current research interests are in micro robotics, including flying and crawling micro-robots, parallel nano-grasping (gecko adhesion), micro-assembly, and rapid prototyping. He has worked in tactile sensing, teletaction, and dextrous manipulation. He has a PhD from Stanford in EE (1988) and SB and SM in EECS from MIT (1983).

Education and Research
My research focuses on physical and chemical hydrogeology on land and below the seafloor. My research group and colleagues have completed projects focusing on groundwater recharge, surface water – groundwater interactions, the upper oceanic crust at seafloor spreading centers and on ridge flanks, heat flow below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and numerous additional problems. We use mapping, seismic, borehole, and thermal data, measure seepage fluxes, collect and analyze water and soil samples, and simulate hydrologic processes using numerical and analytical models.
Cormac Flanagan received the B.S. degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from University College Dublin, Ireland in 1990; and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Rice University, in 1995 and 1997 respectively. He is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), and serves as the Director of Graduate Studies for the Computer
Science Department. Prior to joining UCSC in 2003, he was a Principal Research Scientist at Hewlett Packard Corporation, at Compaq Computer Corporation, and at Digital Equipment Corporation.
My research is on the natural biogeochemical cycles of trace elements in the environment and the perturbation of those cycles by anthropogenic processes. Many of my studies investigate aquatic toxicology in fresh water and estuarine and marine ecosystems. Others address the toxicology of trace elements in ecosystems and humans.
Lee Fleming joined the IEOR Department at UC Berkeley in Fall 2011 and is the Faculty Director of the Coleman Fung Institute of Engineering Leadership. He teaches the engineering leadership and capstone integration courses within the Masters of Engineering curriculum. His research investigates how managers can increase their organization’s chances of inventing a breakthrough, through types of collaboration, the integration of scientific and empirical search strategies, and the recombination of diverse technologies. His recent work has disambiguated the U.S.
Dr. Dan Fletcher is an associate professor in the bioengineering department and biophysics program at the University of California, Berkeley, where his research focuses on the biophysics of cell movements and the cytoskeleton and development of biomedical devices. Recent work from his laboratory includes direct measurement of the actin networks that drive crawling motility, development of vesicle encapsulation technology for cellular reconstitution, and demonstration of fluorescence microscopy on a mobile phone.
Fabian Filipp is an assistant professor of systems biology and cancer metabolism at UC Merced, whose focus is studying the metabolic cycle of melanoma — the most dangerous form of skin cancer.
The UC Merced lab where Filipp works is focused upon early detection and new ways to treat cancer. In Filipp’s area of study, he’s examining cell metabolism and how to use it to treat cancer. Filipp grows melanocytes in the laboratory, studying the ways they behave and analyzing them.
Graham E. Fogg received a B.S. in Hydrology from the University of New Hampshire, an M.S. in Hydrology and Water Resources from the University of Arizona, and a Ph.D. in Geology from The University of Texas at Austin. For about 33 years he has been researching and teaching about subsurface water flow and pollutant transport processes and water resources sustainability.
Dr. Maurizio Forte is Professor of Humanities, Social Sciences and Arts at the University of California, Merced. His research focuses multidisciplinary approachs to the development of virtual heritage, with the goal of integrating technology with field work data from cultural heritage sites. Forte defines “virtual heritage” as digital information derived from a physical site, whether it is an object, monument, territory, or landscape.
