Konlin is pursuing a Ph.D. in EECS at University of California, Berkeley with an emphasis in neuroengineering. He received his B.A. in Physics with a secondary in Computer Science from Harvard University in 2013. His undergraduate research focused on how simple organisms such as C. elegans and fruit flies integrate sensory stimuli into motor behavior.
Jonathan comes to us from Princeton University, where he recently received a Ph. D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. His Ph. D research centered on the theory and applications of a numerical method called dynamic mode decomposition, which is used in the fluid mechanics community to analyze high-dimensional datasets that describe nonlinear dynamics. Prior to that, Jonathan studied at the University of Washington, where he earned a B. S. in Aeronautics and Astronautics, as well as a B. S. in Mathematics. His various awards include the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the Princeton Wu Prize for Excellence.
A bit late, but here’s our latest group pic (where’s Veda?!?):
Comment at will. The crew that put this together is looking for community input.
We’ll be adding bio info on people over the next few days, but the basic info is there (finally!).
Amy Liao received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Rice University in 2012. At Rice, she worked on developing and optimizing a multiplexed microfluidic immunoassay to diagnosis ovarian cancer. For her senior thesis, she designed a low-cost, portable endoscope for use in the developing world. Amy is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at UC Berkeley, with an emphasis in biomedical instrumentation. She’s jumping in to the NSF EFRI project.
Congratulations to Daniel! This award is given by the Electrochemical Society (ECS) and I especially like the fact that the award is about doing high impact work and having fun!
“One feature that distinguishes this award from others is that extracurricular activities and applicants joie de vivre are taken into account side-by-side with scientific excellence. Balancing the two is tricky both in picking the winner and in living your own life.”
