Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in color centers, quantum optics and scalable solid-state photonics. My goal is to develop new paradigms of communication, computation and sensing by utilizing semiconductor nanofabrication and quantum laws of light-matter interaction.

RESEARCH AREA: Operations Research
Stephen works on developing models for discrete choice or rankings. He focuses on choices and rankings made by humans, and try to make my models free of common assumptions that don’t hold for empirical data.
These models can be applied to better understand human preferences and predict human behavior.
Specific datasets he has used include rankings of candidates of elections, favorite types of SUSHI, and modes of transportation used for commuting.

DISSERTATION TITLE: Understanding Social Dynamics in the Digital Economy: An Inductive Analysis of Relationships in an Online Labor Market
Hatim Rahman's dissertation explores the nature of work in the emerging digital economy. In contrast to research that emphasizes the importance of algorithmic matching and technical fit, his research theorizes work in online labor markets as collaborative, relational, and imperfectly defined in nature. He integrates a digital ethnography of an online labor market with a computational textual analysis of users’ discussion on community boards to demonstrate the social dynamics by which reputation systems have become inflated, the process market actors take to build relational contracts, and the different ways in which each actor uses features of the market to exert power. His dissertation has implications for the literature on technology affordances, power and resource dependence, external labor markets, relational contracting, market and platform design, and the emerging nature of work in the digital economy.

BioRam Rajagopal is an Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University, where he directs the Stanford Sustainable Systems Lab (S3L), focused on large-scale monitoring, data analytics and stochastic control for infrastructure networks, in particular, power networks. His current research interests in power systems are in the integration of renewables, smart distribution systems, and demand-side data analytics.
He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and an M.A. in Statistics, both from the University of California Berkeley, Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Texas, Austin and Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, Powell Foundation Fellowship, Berkeley Regents Fellowship and the Makhoul Conjecture Challenge award. He holds more than 30 patents and several best paper awards from his work and has advised or founded various companies in the fields of sensor networks, power systems, and data analytics.
