Adjunct Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering
BioMichael Walton has 40 years of labor relations experience in the construction industry. He has been a Consulting Professor and Consulting Associate Professor at Stanford University for 28 years, teaching a graduate course in construction industry labor relations for the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department.
He is the Owner and President of Employers’ Advocate, Inc., a management labor relations consulting firm with offices in Walnut Creek and Sacramento, CA. Mr. Walton’s firm manages construction industry multi-employer associations and represents association members, individual contractors, and public and private owners in labor relations, collective bargaining and administration of labor agreements. Mr. Walton has been instrumental in negotiating and administering construction industry Basic Craft collective bargaining agreements. He has extensive expertise in negotiating and/or administering building trades’ project labor agreements, including the J. Paul Getty Center Project, Los Angeles; Pacific Bell Ballpark Project, San Francisco; and WSDOT SR 99 Bored Tunnel Alternative Design-Build Project, Seattle.
Mr. Walton serves as Secretary of the Construction Employers’ Association (CEA), a full service multi-employer association of over one hundred prominent union-affiliated building contractors who collectively perform over $15 billion dollars in private and public construction volume annually. Mr. Walton’s other contractor association clients include the Association of Drilled Shaft Contractors, West Coast Chapter; Association of Environmental Contractors and Association of Construction Employers.
Prior to co-founding Employers’ Advocate, Inc., Mr. Walton was employed for 12 years by the Associated General Contractors of California, Inc. (AGC) where he served as AGC’s Northern California Director of Labor Relations from 1978-1985.
Brian A. Wandell
Isaac and Madeline Stein Family Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering, of Ophthalmology and at the Graduate School of Education
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsModels and measures of the human visual system. The brain pathways essential for reading development. Diffusion tensor imaging, functional magnetic resonance imaging and computational modeling of visual perception and brain processes.
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Developmental Biology
BioWe are a discovery-driven research group working at the interface between statistical physics, developmental biology, and bioengineering. We combine quantitative organism-wide fluorescence imaging ("deep imaging"), functional genomics ("deep sequencing"), and statistical modeling to study systems biology and evolutionary cell biology of flatworms, including free living planarians and parasitic flukes. Using these animals, we seek to understand quantitatively the fundamental rules that control stem cell collective behavior to optimize tissue regeneration, remolding, and adaptation.
