Researcher

Professor Michael Franklin

I am a Professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley, specializing in large-scale data management infrastructure and applications. My research interests are primarily in the Database (DB) and Operating Systems and Networking Technology (OSNT) areas. I am a director of the Algorithms, Machines and People Lab (AMPLab) – an industry-supported collaboration of students, postdocs, and faculty who specialize in data management, cloud computing, statistical machine learning and other important topics necessary for making sense of vast amounts of heterogeneous and unruly data.

Professor Jean Frechet

Jean Fréchet was born in France and received his first university degree at the Institut de Chimie et Physique Industrielles (now CPE) in Lyon, France, before coming to the US for graduate studies in organic and polymer chemistry at the State University of New York, College of Forestry, and at Syracuse University. He joined the Chemistry Faculty at the University of Ottawa in Canada in 1973 and remained there until 1987 when he became IBM Professor of Polymer Chemistry at Cornell University. In 1995 he was named to the Peter J. Debye Chair of Chemistry at Cornell University.

Gerald Friedland

Dr. Gerald Friedland is a senior research scientist at the International Computer Science Institute, a private research lab affiliated with the University of California, Berkeley, where he leads a multimedia group, mostly focussing on acoustic techniques such as speaker diarization and acoustic event detection.

Lee Friedman

Lee Friedman is an economist interested in expanding the usefulness of applied microeconomics to the analysis of policy. His substantive policy research areas include criminal justice, public employment, energy, and school finance. His work analyzes how information affects the rationality of individual, organizational, and policy choices. His professional activities include evaluation of an experimental public employment program (for Vera Institute of Justice), school finance alternatives (for the U.S.

Professor Robert Full

Robert Full completed his undergraduate studies at SUNY Buffalo in 1979. He also did his graduate work at SUNY Buffalo, receiving a master’s degree in 1982 and a doctoral degree in 1984. He held a research and teaching post doctoral position at The University of Chicago from 1984 to 1986 during which time he did research at Harvard University. In 1986 he joined the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley as an Assistant Professor of Zoology.

Inez Fung

We study the interactions between climate change and biogeochemical cycles, and focus on the processes that maintain and alter the composition of the atmosphere, and hence the climate.

Professor Ashok Gadgil

Dr. Ashok Gadgil has a doctorate in physics from UC Berkeley, and is a Faculty Senior Scientist, and Director in the Environmental Energy Technologies Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and a Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. He has substantial experience in technical, economic, and policy research on energy efficiency and its implementation — particularly in developing countries.

Pascale Garaud

Pascale Garaud completed her PhD in Astrophysics at the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2001. She then became a fellow of New Hall (now Murray-Edwards College) and a PPARC fellow, and continued her post-doctoral research jointly at the Institute of Astronomy and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics […]

Dr. Dan Garcia

Dan Garcia is a Teaching Professor (aka Senior Lecturer with Security Of Employment) in the Computer Science Division of the EECS Department at the University of California, Berkeley, and joined the faculty in the fall of 2000. Dan received his PhD and MS in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in 2000 and 1995, and dual BS degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from MIT in 1990. He was chosen as an ACM Distinguished Educator in 2012.
