Fabian Filipp is an assistant professor of systems biology and cancer metabolism at UC Merced, whose focus is studying the metabolic cycle of melanoma — the most dangerous form of skin cancer.
The UC Merced lab where Filipp works is focused upon early detection and new ways to treat cancer. In Filipp’s area of study, he’s examining cell metabolism and how to use it to treat cancer. Filipp grows melanocytes in the laboratory, studying the ways they behave and analyzing them.
Graham E. Fogg received a B.S. in Hydrology from the University of New Hampshire, an M.S. in Hydrology and Water Resources from the University of Arizona, and a Ph.D. in Geology from The University of Texas at Austin. For about 33 years he has been researching and teaching about subsurface water flow and pollutant transport processes and water resources sustainability.
Dr. Maurizio Forte is Professor of Humanities, Social Sciences and Arts at the University of California, Merced. His research focuses multidisciplinary approachs to the development of virtual heritage, with the goal of integrating technology with field work data from cultural heritage sites. Forte defines “virtual heritage” as digital information derived from a physical site, whether it is an object, monument, territory, or landscape.
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.
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.

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 of Integrative Biology, UC Berkeley
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.
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.

Ron Glass is an Associate Professor of Philosophy of Education at UC Santa Cruz, and PI/Director of the U.C. Center for Collaborative Research for an Equitable California (CCREC), a multi-campus research program initiative. CCREC approaches the state’s crises in the economy, education, employment, environment, health, housing, and nutrition as inextricably linked and as requiring innovative relationships among researchers, community organizations, and policy makers to understand and respond to them.
My research interests centered on understanding the dynamics of water, energy, and food (WEF) systems OR coupled human-natural systems, specifically using resilience thinking, system analysis, […]

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.
