BioHi ! My name is Nadim Saad and I'm a fourth year PhD candidate in Computational and Mathematical Engineering advised by Professor Margot Gerritsen. My interests lie broadly in Numerical PDEs. I'm currently working on PDE based traffic flow models.
I'm originally from Lebanon and speak English, French and Arabic fluently and proficient in Spanish. In my free time, I enjoy running and singing !
Professor of Management Science and Engineering
BioAmin Saberi is Professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University. He received his B.Sc. from Sharif University of Technology and his Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology in Computer Science. His research interests include algorithms, design and analysis of social networks, and applications. He is a recipient of the Terman Fellowship, Alfred Sloan Fellowship and several best paper awards.
Amin was the founding CEO and chairman of NovoEd Inc., a social learning environment designed in his research lab and used by universities such as Stanford as well as non-profit and for-profit institutions for offering courses to hundreds of thousands of learners around the world.
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in the intersection of Causal Inference and Machine Learning.

Professor (Research) of Management Science and Engineering, Emeritus
BioSaunders develops mathematical methods for solving large-scale constrained optimization problems and large systems of equations. He also implements such methods as general-purpose software to allow their use in many areas of engineering, science, and business. He is co-developer of the large-scale optimizers MINOS, SNOPT, SQOPT, PDCO, the dense QP and NLP solvers LSSOL, QPOPT, NPSOL, and the linear equation solvers SYMMLQ, MINRES, MINRES-QLP, LSQR, LSMR, LSLQ, LNLQ, LSRN, LUSOL.

Lester Levi Carter Professor and Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have over 25 years experience in theoretical and computational research related to complex fluids following my PhD in 1986. This includes work in suspension mechanics of rigid partlcles (rods), solution mechanics of polymers and most recently suspensions of vesicles, capsules and mixtures of these with rigid particles. My research group is internationally known for pioneering work in all these areas.
Assistant Professor of Management Science and Engineering and of Computer Science
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests lie broadly in the optimization, the theory of computation, and the design and analysis of algorithms. I am particularly interested in work at the intersection of continuous optimization, graph theory, numerical linear algebra, and data structures.

Masters Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2022
BioAdrien Specht is a master’s student at both ENS Paris-Saclay and Stanford University. He majored in electrical, computational, and mathematical engineering with the ambition to advance Sleep Sciences. In France, he was one of the sleep pioneers working with the start-up Dreem on a new deep learning strategy to conduct EEG spectral analysis. Now in California, he is assisting Dr. Mignot with data-oriented research such as studying sleep depth and circadian rhythm with machine learning and proteomics. To him, the best moment of the day is after lunch with a coffee, a nice sunbath, and enjoyable sleep talks with colleagues.

BioMy research group studies disasters to reduce the risk they pose. We approach this challenge by developing customized mathematical models that can be tested against observational data and are informed by community needs through a scientific co-production process. We intentionally work on extremes across different natural systems rather than focusing on one specific natural system to identify both commonalities in the physical processes driving extremes and in the best practices for mitigating risk at the community level. Our current research priorities include volcanic eruptions, ice-sheet instability, permafrost disintegration, induced seismicity and flood-risk mitigation. I was recently awarded the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the United States Government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers and the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation.
