Barnum-Simons Chair in Math and Statistics, and Professor of Statistics and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering
BioEmmanuel Candès is the Barnum-Simons Chair in Mathematics and Statistics, a professor of electrical engineering (by courtesy) and a member of the Institute of Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University. Earlier, Candès was the Ronald and Maxine Linde Professor of Applied and Computational Mathematics at the California Institute of Technology. His research interests are in computational harmonic analysis, statistics, information theory, signal processing and mathematical optimization with applications to the imaging sciences, scientific computing and inverse problems. He received his Ph.D. in statistics from Stanford University in 1998.
Candès has received several awards including the Alan T. Waterman Award from NSF, which is the highest honor bestowed by the National Science Foundation, and which recognizes the achievements of early-career scientists. He has given over 60 plenary lectures at major international conferences, not only in mathematics and statistics but in many other areas as well including biomedical imaging and solid-state physics. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences and to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2014.
Visiting Associate Professor, Electrical Engineering
BioShuo Cao received the Ph.D. in condensed matter physics from the Institute of Physics (IOP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS), Beijing, China in 2015. He obtained the M.Sc. degree in theoretical physics in 2004 and the B.Sc. degree in physics in 2000 from the School of Physics, Liaoning University, Shenyang, China.
Since 2004, he has been on the Faculty at Liaoning University, Shenyang and currently holds the position of Associate professor in the Department of Fundamental Physics, School of Physics, Liaoning University, Shenyang, where he is currently serving as Chair of the Department.
Dr. Cao was awarded the outstanding undergraduate experimental teaching prize in Liaoning University in 2018, the Teaching Achievement Prizes at the undergraduate course of University education in Liaoning Province in 2018, an Academic Achievement Award of academic paper in Shenyang City in 2018, an Academic Achievement Award of academic paper in Liaoning Province in 2017, the Miyoshi student pacesetter of University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015, the Director Scholarship Award in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2014, Miyoshi student of University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2013, the Director Scholarship Award in Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2013, the Excellent Posted Report Award of Chinese Society of Physics Fall Academic Conference in 2013.
In 2019, he is awarded a scholarship under State Scholarship Fund to study in the United States of America as a Visiting Scholar from China Scholarship Council (CSC), and he has been appointed as a Visiting Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering in the School of Engineering, Stanford University.
His research fields are the electronic and optical properties of low-dimensional materials, such as zero-dimensional quantum dot (QD), two-dimensional graphene (GR), and hybrid QD-GR materials and optoelectronic devices. Recently, he is particularly interested in analyzing and understanding energy band coupling and intrinsic charge transfer, transition micro-mechanisms of hybrid low-dimensional materials and optoelectronic devices.

John M. Cioffi
Hitachi America Professor in the School of Engineering, Emeritus
BioJohn M. Cioffi taught Stanford's graduate electrical engineering course sequence in digital communications for over 20 years from 1986 to 2008, when he retired to emeritus. Cioffi's research interests were in the theory of transmitting the highest possible data rates on a number of different communications channels, many of which efforts were spun out of Stanford through he and/or his many former PhD students to companies, most notably including the basic designed used worldwide on more than 500 million DSL connections. Cioffi also over saw the prototype developments for the worlds first cable modem and digital-audio broadcast system. Cioffi pioneering the use of remote management algorithms to improve (over the internet or cloud) both wireline (DSL) and wireless (Wi-Fi) physical-layer transmission performance, an area often known as Dynamic Spectrum Management or Dynamic Line Management. Cioffi was co-inventer on basic patents for vectored DSL transmission and optimized MIMO wireless transmission. In his early career, Cioffi developed the worlds first full-duplex voiceband data modem while at Bell Laboratories, and the worlds first adaptively equalized disk read channel while at IBM. His courses and research projects over the years centered on these areas.

BioProf. Close's research involves space weather detection and modeling for improved spacecraft designs, and advanced signal processing and electromagnetic wave interactions with plasma for ground-to-satellite communication systems. These topics fall under the Space Situational Awareness (SSA) umbrella that include environmental remote sensing using satellite systems and ground-based radar. Her current efforts are the MEDUSSA (Meteoroid, Energetics, and Debris Understanding for Space Situational Awareness) program, which uses dust accelerators to understand the effects of hypervelocity particle impacts on spacecraft along with Particle-In-Cell simulations, and using ground-based radars to characterize the space debris and meteoroid population remotely. She also has active programs in hypersonic plasmas associated with re-entry vehicles.
