    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am investigating the biophysical mechanisms that govern the organization and function of adhesion GPCRs involved in the process of synapse formation. aGPCRs possess dual roles in cell adhesion and signaling. Despite their importance in processes like neuronal synapse formation and association with various neuropsychiatric disorders, the precise mechanisms governing their organization and function at the cell membrane remain enigmatic.

    Federico Bianchi

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Computer Science

    BioFederico Bianchi is a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University. His research, ranging from Natural Language Processing methods for textual analytics to recommender systems for e-commerce has been accepted to major NLP and AI conferences (EACL, NAACL, EMNLP, ACL, AAAI, RecSys) and journals (Cognitive Science, Applied Intelligence, Semantic Web Journal).

  • Jose Bolorinos

    Jose Bolorinos

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Civil and Environmental Engineering

    BioJose Bolorinos is a Postdoctoral scholar in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Jose received his PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering (Atmosphere & Energy) and an M.S. in Statistics at Stanford. Jose's research focuses on data-driven, systems-level strategies for coordinating urban water and energy supply infrastructure. As part of this work, he has investigated policy approaches that better understand and manage the lifecycle impacts of the energy sector on watersheds, air quality, and carbon emissions. Jose has also developed closed-loop customer monitoring and segmentation tools that allow water and electricity utilities to quickly track the responses of their customers to demand shocks inside and outside of their service areas. Currently, he is developing data-driven methods for optimal design and operation of energy storage in the wastewater treatment sector. His work has been featured at the California Data Collaborative, Stanford's Big Earth Water Hackathon, and AI for Climate Change Initiative.

    Prior to coming to Stanford, Jose worked as a data scientist for a healthcare consultancy subcontracted by the federal government to manage its Medicare and Medicaid claims databases. Jose received a B.A. in Economics from UC Berkeley and an M.S. in Environmental Engineering and Science from Stanford University. He was part of the start up operations team at the Bill & Cloy Resource Recovery Center, an experimental, pilot-scale wastewater treatment facility launched recently on the Stanford campus to accelerate innovative approaches to wastewater treatment.
