  • Ben Rachunok

    Ben Rachunok

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Civil and Environmental Engineering

    BioBen Rachunok is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Stanford University in The Fletcher Lab. His research focuses on integrating environmental justice and engineering principles to create climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies which justly benefit all populations. Currently, he is working to develop tools and management policies to enable low-cost water supply planning that is resilient to droughts and enables access to affordable water for all communities. Much of Ben and his colleagues’ work revolves around ensuring that decisions made by water providers and utilities to mitigate drought impacts respect every human’s right to safe, affordable, drinking water.

    Prior to joining Stanford, Ben made a number of contributions utilizing data science to study critical infrastructure. Notably, developing data scientific tools which utilize real-time social media data to quantify how communities are impacted by climate change and natural hazards. His work has been featured by Tech Crunch, Gizmodo, Yahoo! Finance, The Huffington Post, and the UN Office of Disaster Risk Reduction. Ben was an R&D Intern at the Center for Computing Research at Sandia National Labs. He received his BS in Industrial & Systems Engineering from North Carolina State University, and holds a PhD in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University where he was a recipient of the Lee Chaden Scholarship and Estus H. and Vashti L. Magoon Award.

  • Athanasios Ramkaj

    Athanasios Ramkaj

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Electrical Engineering

    BioAthanasios Ramkaj (S’16) received the B.Sc. degree in physics (electronics specialization) from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece, the M.Sc. degree (cum laude) in electrical engineering (microelectronics) from TU Delft, Delft, The Netherlands, and the Ph.D. degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering from KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium, in 2012, 2014, and 2021, respectively. His Ph.D. research was in the field of Multi-GHz Bandwidth Power-Efficient Nyquist A/D Conversion, supervised by Prof. Dr. Ir. Filip Tavernier, Prof. Dr. Ir. Michiel Steyaert and Dr. Ir. Marcel Pelgrom. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow with the Murmann Mixed-Signal Group, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, in the field of high-performance ultra-low jitter ADCs.

    From 2013 to 2014, he was a research intern with the Central Research & Development Department, NXP Semiconductors, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where he worked in the modeling of different DACs and the design of GHz-range ADCs for communications applications. In 2019, he was a research/design intern with the High-Speed Data Converters Group, Analog Devices Inc., Wilmington, MA, USA, investigating highly integrated solutions for bandwidth extension of next-generation RF ADCs.

    Dr. Ramkaj was the recipient of the 2021 Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award, the 2019-2020 IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Predoctoral Achievement Award, and the 2015 IEEE PRIME Golden Leaf Best Student Paper Award. He also serves as a reviewer for the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits (JSSC), IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems (TVLSI), IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs (TCAS-II), MDPI Journal Electronics, and IEEE International Symposium on Circuits & Systems (ISCAS).

  • Ha Rim Rho

    Ha Rim Rho

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Computer Science

    BioEugenia Rho, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford Computer Science and an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Tech (starting in Fall 2021). She applies machine learning and experimental design to examine linguistic behavior across discussions around substantive social issues. Her research at Stanford focuses on predicting linguistic patterns in escalations across police-community interactions by applying NLP techniques on dialogue captured through police-body cameras.

  • Jen Rhymer

    Jen Rhymer

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Management Science and Engineering
    Evaluation Associate, Stanford Center for Professional Development

    BioJen Rhymer is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Center for Work, Technology, and Organization (WTO) at Stanford University in the Management Science and Engineering Department (MS&E). Her research focuses on questions related to organizational design, distributed work, collaboration, knowledge systems, and emerging technologies. Jen's recent research is in the context of location-independent and virtual-first organizations. To generate theoretical insights she leverages qualitative field data as well as the use of simulation methodologies.
