Fritz Sommer

Research Interests

Many impressive capabilities of the brain are not yet understood, for example, abilities in perception to rapidly analyze cluttered visual scenes, spoken language, morse code or the virtually unlimited capacity of our long-term memory. My lab investigates the theoretical principles how neurons and networks in the brain collaborate and organize to produce perception, memory and ultimately cognition. To study these issues we develop computational models of the brain, as well as advanced techniques of data analysis.

Oliver Staadt

Oliver Staadt is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Davis. Prior to joining UC Davis, he has been Senior Research Associate in the Computer Graphics Lab at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He received a MSc degree in Computer Science from the Darmstadt Technical University, Germany, in 1995 and a PhD in Computer Science in 2001 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich, Switzerland. His past research includes multi-resolution representations and compression of surface and volume data.

Mark Stacey

My research activity is in the area of environmental fluid mechanics, with a focus on the physical processes that govern fluid motions and the interdisciplinary implications of transport and mixing in estuarine and coastal environments.

Professor Vivek Subramanian

Vivek Subramanian received his BS in electrical engineering from Louisiana State University in 1994. He received his MS and PhD in electrical engineering, in 1996 and 1998 respectively, from Stanford University.

Elaine Sullivan

My work on 3D visualizations of ancient Egyptian sites aligns with the CITRIS mission of ‘Connected Communities’ and the innovative use of virtual reality/augmented reality […]

Jian-Qiao Sun

Having trouble recovering from a knee injury or a stroke? Bothered by noise in an airplane? For these problems and many more, UC Merced mechanical engineering Professor Jian-Qiao Sun is working on research answers.

Ilias Tagkopoulos

Our lab’s interests span a variety of topics related to evolutionary, synthetic and systems biology. We employ machine learning, graph theory, mathematical optimization, multiscale modeling […]

Yayoi Takamura

The development of next generation spintronic devices, sensors, and low temperature solid oxide fuel cells requires the development of materials with new functional properties not found in conventional bulk materials. A novel route involves harnessing the unexpected physical phenomena that result from the changes in structure and chemistry which occur over nanometer scales at surfaces and interfaces.

Jeffrey Tanji

Sports medicine is a rapidly evolving field that encompasses more than the care of an elite athlete. Industrial “athletes,” recreational athletes, and individuals with medical conditions and disabilities are all part of a specialty sports medicine practice. I try to do the very best I can for my patients, with their good health in mind. I have respect for my patients, regardless of their background or status. I encourage them to take personal responsibility and initiative for healthy habits.

Matías Tarnopolsky

Matías Tarnopolsky is director of Cal Performances. He has written extensively about music, including material for liner notes, program notes, and articles for magazines and other publications. Among other posts, he has served as vice president for artistic planning at the New York Philharmonic; senior director of artistic planning for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, leading its popular series, “Symphony Center Presents.” He also created the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s new music series, MusicNOW.

Hayden Taylor

Welcome to the Design for Nanomanufacturing research group, which is led by Assistant Professor Hayden Taylor and based in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Our work spans the invention, modeling and simulation of micro- and nano-manufacturing processes, materials-testing techniques operating down to the nanoscale, and applications of polymeric materials in micro- and nano-fabrication, including for tissue scaffold engineering.

Mayya Tokman

The elegant swirls and arcs of solar coronal loops may enchant space fans, but the math that helps explain them is the territory of Professor Mayya Tokman. Among her many areas of interest in applied mathematics, she has worked on modeling large-scale behavior of astrophysical and laboratory plasmas, including the evolution of solar coronal loops in the solar atmosphere.

Tokman also works to develop mathematical approaches to other problems in science and engineering, including models of experimental manipulations of the biomolecular structure of living cells.

Travis Tollefson

Dr. Tollefson has an interest in studying facial deformities found at birth, such as cleft lip and palate, microtia (absent ears), and craniosynostosis. He believes that translational research that links basic science discoveries to clinical use is very important. He has co-authored several articles and two textbook chapters on various topics in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery; including cleft lip and palate, nasal reconstruction, and facial implant materials.

Masayoshi Tomizuka

Tomizuka’s research covers control theory and its applications to various mechanical systems. A balance between theory and laboratory work is emphasized. The trend in mechanical system design is to replace mechanical complexity with electronics and computers (real time controllers) in order to gain high performance, reliability and flexibility. A number of control methodologies relevant to mechanical systems are under investigation in his research group: they include optimal control, preview control, adaptive control, and nonlinear robust control.

Professor Iris Tommelein

Iris D. Tommelein is Professor of Engineering and Project Management, in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at U.C. Berkeley. She teaches and conducts research developing the theory and principles of project-based production management for the architecture-engineering-construction industry, what is termed ‘lean construction.’ Current research focuses on the work specialty contractors and suppliers perform and how they can become integral participants in design-build teams in order to increase process and product development performance.
