David Haussler develops new statistical and algorithmic methods to explore the molecular evolution of the human genomeDavid Haussler’s research lies at the interface of mathematics, computer science, and molecular biology. He develops new statistical and algorithmic methods to explore the molecular function and evolution of the human genome, integrating cross-species comparative and high-throughput genomics data to study gene structure, function, and regulation. He is credited with pioneering the use of hidden Markov models (HMMs), stochastic context-free grammars, and the discriminative kernel method for analyzing DNA, RNA, and protein sequences. He was the first to apply the latter methods to the genome-wide search for gene expression biomarkers in cancer, now a major effort of his laboratory.
Philip Haves is the Leader of the Simulation Research Group. He has worked on many different aspects of commercial buildings since 1986, with particular interest in simulation and building operations. He is a Fellow of ASHRAE, the immediate past chair of its Technical Committee on Energy Calculations and a former Chair of its Technical Committee on Building Operation Dynamics. He is a past president of IBPSA-USA, the U.S. affiliate of the International Building Performance Simulation Association. He has a B.A. in Physics from Oxford University and a Ph.D.
Kevin Healy received his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania in Bioengineering in 1990. His research interests are biomaterials and tissue engineering. The design and synthesis of biomimetic materials that actively direct the behavior of mammalian cells to facilitate regeneration of tissue and organs, and the design and synthesis of materials that circumvent their passive behavior in complex mammalian cells is the focus of the work conducted at Berkeley.
Dr. Hearst focuses on designing, building, and evaluating information access systems. She has designed several novel information visualization and text analysis techniques for this purpose, including TextTiling, TileBars, and the Cat-a-Cone.
Joseph M. Hellerstein is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. Hellerstein’s work focuses on data-centric systems and the way they drive computing.
Professor Heritage is conducting research in microphotonics, terahertz bandwidth optics, next generation optical networks, optical microwave interactions and vacuum optoelectonics. Recent developments include MEMS mirror arrays for all optical switching, femtosecond pulse shaping, and miniature broadband time delay scanners. He investigates the impact of physical layer impairments on performance of switched WDM networks.

James Holston’s current research examines the worldwide insurgence of democratic citizenships in the context of global urbanization. Three considerations frame this work: those of theme, method, and critique.
Elizabeth Alice Honig was obsessed from an early age by anything to do with her namesake, Elizabeth I. An undergraduate career at Bryn Mawr, where she served as Costumes Mistress to the annual Elizabethan May Day celebrations, confirmed this inclination. She worked at Hampton Court Palace and then went to Yale. There, her secondary fascination with shopping lead to a change in direction and she wrote her dissertation on Flemish market scenes and the history of economic thought. She lived in Amsterdam for many years, where she could listen to English radio while studying the art of Belgium.

Background: Professor Islam’s work has covered a broad variety of topics: molecular electronic devices, synthesis and device applications of semiconductor nanowires, ultra-fast optoelectronics, high-power and linear gain-clamped semiconductor optical amplifiers, fiber optical communication systems, and RF photonic devices and links. He was the first to demonstrate the velocity-matched distributed balanced photodetectors with a record high linear photocurrents and an ultra-fast response.
Ken Jacobs is the Chair of the Labor Center, where he has been a Labor Specialist since 2002. His areas of specialization include health care coverage, the California budget, low-wage work, the retail industry and public policy. Recent papers have examined the impact that the national health reform law will have on California small businesses, their employees, the self-employed, and the state overall; the economic effects of various options for closing California’s budget deficit; and declining job-based health coverage in California and the U.S.

Finding means to improve the conversion and expand the beneficial use of biomass fuels constitutes the primary research effort for the Biomass Laboratory. Much of the current biomass conversion research is targeted at understanding the role of inorganic materials found in biomass during thermal conversion to heat and power via combustion and gasification. Boilers burning biomass are subject to fouling and corrosion from alkali metals, chlorine, and other constituents of biomass released during combustion.
