Sr. Research Engineer
BioDr. Andreas Paepcke is a Senior Research Scientist and Director for Data Analytics in support of online teaching efforts at Stanford University. His interests include user interfaces and systems for teaching and learning. He uses data analytics to create tools that benefit these online efforts. In the past Dr. Paepcke and his groups of students designed and implemented WebBase, an experimental storage and high speed dissemination system for Web content. Their work on small devices focused on novel methods for summarizing and transforming Web pages, and browsing images on small displays. Dr. Paepcke has served on numerous program committees, including a position as Vice Program Chair, heading the World-Wide Web Conference's 'Browsers and User Interfaces' program track, and as Program Chair for the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2008. He served on several National Science Foundation proposal evaluation panels and was co-founding associate editor of ACM Transactions on the Web. Dr. Paepcke received BS and MS degrees in applied mathematics from Harvard University, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. Previously, he worked as a researcher at Hewlett-Packard Laboratory, and as a research consultant at Xerox PARC. He has served on a number of technical advisory boards for startup companies.

Associate Professor of Computer Science, Emeritus
BioPlotkin's focus is on optimization problems that are encountered in the context of design, management, and maintenance of broadband communication networks. Currently his main effort in this area is concentrated on development of algorithms for network topology design, routing, capacity sizing, server placement, and fair resource allocation. His goal is to develop both offline strategies that can be used during network design stage, as well as online strategies that can be applied to optimize existing network infrastructure.
