Researcher

Gary Griggs

Gary Griggs’s research is focused on the coastal zone and ranges from coastal evolution and development, through shoreline processes, coastal engineering and coastal hazards. California has 1100 miles of coastline, 950 miles of which is eroding, and 32 million people who want to enjoy or live next to this geologically active zone. The tectonically active California coastline presents a range of interesting processes and problems within a few minutes or miles of campus.

Professor Claire Gu

Claire Gu’s research interests include fiber optics, holographic data storage, liquid crystal displays, nonlinear optics, and optical information processing; with a current emphasis on fiber sensors using SERS (surface enhanced Raman scattering). She has published more than 180 journal and conference papers in these areas. In addition, she has co-authored a text/reference book on “Optics of Liquid Crystal Displays”, and co-edited two technical books on photorefractive nonlinear optics and applications. She received a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award in 1993.

Professor Qinghua Guo

Professor Guo’s research includes the methodological and applied aspects of geographical information science. On methodological front, he mainly focus on:

Geocomputation
Remote sensing techniques
Spatial analysis

On the applied front, Professor Guo is interested in the application of geospatial techniques in solving large-scale ecological and geographical problems, with emphasis on the effects of invasive species, climate change, and human disturbance on terrestrial ecosystems.

Education

Dr. Randi Hagerman

Randi J. Hagerman has more than 20 years of experience in the field of neurodevelopmental disorders and fragile X syndrome — the most common inherited cause of mental retardation. Her research focuses on the correlation between an individual’s molecular genotype, or genetic make-up, and physical and behavioral characteristics, in addition to targeted treatments for Fragile X Syndrome and the fragile X-associated tremor ataxia syndrome (FXTAS).

Abhishek Halder

My research areas are dynamical systems and control theory, and optimization with application focus on large scale cyber-physical systems such as smart grid and unmanned aerial vehicle traffic management. My research focus on analysis and control of large scale engineering systems aligns strongly with CITRIS mission of addressing pressing challenges through interdisciplinary IT research and […]

Bernd Hamann is a full professor of computer science at UC Davis. Previously he served as Associate Vice Chancellor for Research.

Susan Handy

Dr. Susan Handy is a Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy and the Director of the Sustainable Transportation Center at the University of California Davis. Her research interests focus on the relationships between transportation and land use, particularly the impact of land development patterns on travel behavior. She is internationally known for her research on the connection between neighborhood design and walking behavior. Her current work focuses on improving understanding the choice to bicycle as a mode of transportation.
