  • Christoforos Kozyrakis

    Christoforos Kozyrakis

    Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Computer Science

    BioChristos Kozyrakis research focuses on making computer system of any size faster, cheaper, and greener. His current work focuses on the hardware architecture, runtime environment, programming models, and security infrastructure for warehouse-scale data centers and many-core chips with thousands of general purpose cores and fixed functions accelerators.

  • Ilan Kroo

    Ilan Kroo

    Thomas V. Jones Professor in the School of Engineering

    BioProfessor Kroo's research involves work in three general areas: multidisciplinary optimization and aircraft synthesis, unconventional aircraft, and low-speed aerodynamics. Current research in the field of aircraft synthesis, sponsored by NASA and industry, includes the development of a new computational architecture for aircraft design, and its integration with numerical optimization. Studies of unconventional configurations employ rapid turnaround analysis methods in the design of efficient subsonic and supersonic commercial aircraft. Recent research has included investigation of configurations such as joined wings, oblique wings, and tailless aircraft. Nonlinear low-speed aerodynamics studies have focused on vortex wake roll-up, refined computation of induced drag, the design of wing tips, and the aerodynamics of maneuvering aircraft.

  • Rajan Kumar

    Rajan Kumar

    Lecturer

    BioRajan (Raj) Kumar is a Lecturer and the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Materials Science and Engineering Department and serves as a Lecturer Consultant with the Center for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University. He specializes in integrating research and communication learning goals into STEM courses and designing inclusive research experiences for undergraduates. Raj currently teaches a variety of undergraduate and master’s level MatSci courses and is the faculty coordinator for the MatSci REU Program. Through these efforts, Raj strives to help students develop strong research and communication skills and solve multidisciplinary problems.

    Raj received his both his BS (Northwestern) and his PhD (UC Berkeley) in Materials Science and Engineering. During his PhD, Raj studied electrochemical energy storage devices with an emphasis on developing printable batteries for integrated electronic systems. He also completed part of his PhD at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory through the Department of Energy SCGSR Fellowship. As a graduate student, Raj received the UC Berkeley Teaching Effectiveness Award and Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award. He also led workshops on effective teaching strategies for first-time graduate student instructors.

  • Phillip Kyriakakis

    Phillip Kyriakakis

    Sr Res Scientist-Basic Life

    BioPhillip Kyriakakis, Ph.D. is Senior Research Scientist in the Bioengineering Department at Stanford University in the Wu Tsai Institute for Neuroscience. Dr. Kyiakakis did his undergraduate work in Biochemistry at UMass Boston where he also worked in the lab of Dr. Alexey Veraksa's developmental biology lab doing biochemical experiments as well as starting to develop PhyB optogenetics (2008). Dr. Kyriakakis continued his education at UC San Diego in the Division of Biological Sciences. There he studied cellular programming and metabolism to obtain his degree with a specialization in Multiscale Biology. Dr. Kyriakakis did his postdoctoral work in the Bioengineering Department at UC San Diego with Todd Coleman continuing the development optogenetic tools and related technologies. In 2021 Dr. Kyriakakis moved to his Senior Research Scientist role at Stanford University in the Bioengineering Department in the Wu Tsai Institute for Neurosciences.
