Director, CITRIS Aviation
I am Professor of Statistics and Chair of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics of the University of California, Santa Cruz, where I have been part of the faculty since the Fall of 2001. During these years I have joined the effort of founding the department and starting its core programs. Before coming to Santa Cruz, I was a founding member of the Center for Statistics and Mathematical Software as well as of the Department of Scientific Computing and Statistics of Universidad Simón Bolívar, Caracas, Venezuela.

AnnaLee Saxenian is Dean and Professor in the School of Information and professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley. Her most recent book, The New Argonauts: Regional Advantage in the Global Economy (Harvard University Press, 2006), explores how the “brain circulation” by immigrant engineers from Silicon Valley has transferred technology entrepreneurship to emerging regions in China, India, Taiwan, and Israel.
Prof. Anna Scaglione received the Laurea (M.Sc. degree) in 1995 and the Ph.D. degree in 1999 from the University of Rome, “La Sapienza.” She is currently Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of California, Davis, where she joined in 2008. She was previously at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, from 2001 where became Associate Professor in 2006; prior to joining Cornell she was Assistant Professor in the year 2000-2001, at the University of New Mexico.

I lead a research group that focuses on engineering high-throughput miniaturized screening platforms to study nano-scale material properties and their implications on electrical, biochemical, optical, […]
A liquid, if it does not crystallize on cooling, can undergo a “glass transition”, a falling-out-of equilibrium in terms of motion and rearrangement of its molecular constituents. The rapid increase in viscosity near the glass transition temperature, Tg, transforms the flowing liquid into a rigid solid without the long-range order characteristic of crystals.

Carlo H. Séquin is a professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his Ph.D. degree in experimental physics from the University of Basel, Switzerland in 1969. From 1970 till 1976 he worked at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, on the design and investigation of Charge-Coupled Devices for imaging and signal processing applications. At Bell Labs he also got introduced to the world of Computer Graphics in classes given by Ken Knowlton.

Professor Jonathan Shewchuk obtained his B.Sc. in Physics and Computing Science from Simon Fraser University, 1990, and a M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, the latter in 1997. He joined the Computer Science Division of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley in 1998.
Justin Short is an M. Arch candidate of the University of California, Berkeley. The John K. Branner Fellowship affords a year of independent study and travel. His proposal examines the physical implications—collateral architecture, urbanism, and infrastructure—of varied postures in material provenance.

Dr. Simon received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California, San Diego in 1988. Postdoctoral training in Immunology and Inflammation Biology was initiated at the Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA, and was completed at the National Flow Cytometry Resource at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. He then joined the faculty at Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine’s Section of Leukocyte Biology, Dept of Pediatrics in Houston, TX, where he remained for 7 years. Dr.
