Welcome Jonathan Tu!

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.

Group shot from our summer group parrillada!

A bit late, but here’s our latest group pic (where’s Veda?!?):

(I suppose “stupid” was a strong word, perhaps?  …   :) 

Group Member page finally updated

We’ll be adding bio info on people over the next few days, but the basic info is there (finally!).

Welcome Amy Liao!!!

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.
