Researcher

Dr. Michael Clancy

I received my B.S. at University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), attended Stanford University as a graduate student, and was appointed Lecturer at U.C. Berkeley in 1977. I received security of employment in 1983, and was appointed Senior Lecturer in 1989. (Lecturers in the U.C. system are faculty whose job responsibilities include teaching and University service, but not research. More information on U.C. Berkeley lecturers and security of employment—the lecturer equivalent of tenure—is available here and here.)

Professor Carlos Coimbra

Professor Carlos Coimbra joined the School of Engineering after six year as a member of the faculty at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. He is a mechanical engineer with interests in solar energy and aerospace applications who earned his Ph.D. at UC Irvine.

Research interests

Solar Energy; Solar/Wind Forecasting; Aerodynamics; Atmospheric Phenomena; Variable Order Mechanics (VOM); Unsteady Multiphase Flows.

Michael Colvin

The past century has seen tremendous progress in determining the biochemical and biophysical processes that constitute life. One exciting consequence of this understanding is the possibility of developing mathematical models of biological function that are accurate and even predictive.

Martha Conklin

Dr. Martha Conklin, Professor of Engineering and member of the Environmental Systems Graduate Group, joined UC Merced in 2003 as one of the Founding Faculty. Dr. Conklin is Co-PI of the National Science Foundation’s Sierra Nevada Critical Zone Observatory located at the Kings River Experimental Watershed. As a member of the Sierra Nevada Research Institute, Dr. […]

Professor Steve Conolly

Dr. Conolly is an Associate Professor of Bioengineering, and received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, where he has been a researcher for the past twenty years. Working in biomedical imaging, especially Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Dr. Conolly holds 15 patents and is the recipient of Stanford’s Outstanding Inventor award.

James Crutchfield

Professor James Crutchfield received his B.A. summa cum laude in Physics and Mathematics from the University of California, Santa Cruz, in 1979 and his Ph.D. in Physics there in 1983. He is currently a Professor of Physics at the University of California, Davis, where he is the Director of the Complexity Sciences Center — a new research and graduate program in complex systems.

David Culler

Professor David Culler is former Faculty Director of the CITRIS Sustainable Infrastructures Initiative. His research addresses networks of small, embedded wireless devices, planetary-scale internet services, parallel computer architecture, parallel programming languages, and high performance communication. This includes TinyOS, Berkeley Motes, PlanetLab, Networks of Workstations (NOW), Internet services, Active Messages, Split-C, and the Threaded Abstract Machine (TAM).

Raissa D'Souza

Raissa D’Souza is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and of Computer Science at the University of California, Davis, as well as an External Professor at the Santa Fe Institute. Her research focuses on mathematical models of self-organization, phase transitions and the structure and function of networked systems.
