John Michael Abendroth
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Materials Science and Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsJohn's Ph.D. research concentrated on elucidating spin-dependent electron transport through chiral molecular assemblies, measuring room-temperature electron spin filtering in DNA-mediated charge transfer, and spin-dependent energy barriers to photoelectron transmission through helical oligopeptides. John's current postdoctoral research focuses on theoretical design and experimental implementation of nanophotonic platforms to amplify chiral light–matter interactions for advanced spectroscopies.
Masters Student in Computer Science, admitted Autumn 2011
BioI'm Feross Aboukhadijeh, an entrepreneur, programmer, open source maintainer, startup founder, and mad scientist.
I build web apps like BitMidi, a free MIDI database, and Play, a music video app, and Study Notes, a site to help students study better and get into college.
Before that, I built PeerCDN, a peer-to-peer content delivery network to makes sites faster and cheaper, which was acquired by Yahoo.
I enjoy working on "mad science" — stuff that makes people say, "Whoa! I didn't know that was possible!".
I'm a graduate of Stanford University and I've worked at Quora, Facebook, Yahoo, and Intel. In the past, I did research in the Stanford human-computer interaction and computer security labs.
At Stanford, I taught computer science for 6 quarters to students in Stanford's CS 198 program, and was a teaching assistant for CS107: Computer Organization and Systems. I organized lots of sweet computing-related events as president of Stanford's Association for Computing Machinery chapter.
In September 2010, I built YouTube Instant (a really fast way to search YouTube) in just 3 hours as a bet with my roommate. The site garnered immediate worldwide media attention — 1 million visitors in 10 days, and hundreds of news stories. Chad Hurley, CEO and co-founder of YouTube, was so impressed that he immediately offered me a job at YouTube (which I had to turn down in order to finish my degree).
In my free time, I continue to maintain StudyNotes, a website to help students study better. I started it in high school and have been maintaining it ever since. For a sample, check out some AP US History notes or college essays.
I like long-distance running, traveling, vapourwave, anime, and games (counter-strike is still my favorite).
My resume is available if you want to be all, like, formal and stuff, dude. Email me at [my first name]@feross.org.
Guillermo Aboumrad Sidaoui
Ph.D. Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Summer 2018
BioWillie was born and raised in Mexico City. He later moved to the UK to complete his high school studies. In the fall of 2014, Willie arrived at Stanford to begin his undergraduate career in Mathematics. Interested in applications of mathematical theory, he later gained admission to the Master's program at ICME. He is currently pursuing a doctoral degree under the advisory of Prof. Daniel Bump.
