BioProfessor Ugander's research develops algorithmic and statistical frameworks for analyzing social networks, social systems, and other large-scale data-rich contexts. He is particularly interested in the challenges of causal inference and experimentation in these complex domains. His work commonly falls at the intersections of graph theory, machine learning, statistics, optimization, and algorithm design.
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsExperimental biomechanical analysis of healthy and pathological human movement. Real-time biofeedback to modify motor control and kinematics.
Musculoskeletal modeling and simulation for estimating unmeasurable quantities during movement, like joint forces in individuals with osteoarthritis. Predictive musculoskeletal simulations to design rehabilitation interventions.
Computer vision, wearable sensing, and machine learning to develop tools that democratize biomechanical analysis and translate biomechanical interventions into clinical practice.
Quantitative MRI for analyzing the effect of non-surgical treatments for osteoarthritis on cartilage health. PET-MRI for analyzing relationships between the mechanical loading of tissue metabolic activity.
Stanford Warren Ascherman Professor of Engineering , Emeritus
BioJeff Ullman is the Stanford W. Ascherman Professor of Engineering
(Emeritus) in the Department of Computer Science at Stanford and CEO
of Gradiance Corp. He received the B.S. degree from Columbia
University in 1963 and the PhD from Princeton in 1966. Prior to his
appointment at Stanford in 1979, he was a member of the technical
staff of Bell Laboratories from
1966-1969, and on the faculty of Princeton University between
1969 and 1979. From 1990-1994, he was chair of the Stanford Computer
Science Department. Ullman was elected to the National Academy of
Engineering in 1989, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in
2012, and has held Guggenheim and Einstein Fellowships. He has
received the Sigmod Contributions Award (1996), the ACM Karl V. Karlstrom
Outstanding Educator Award (1998), the Knuth Prize (2000),
the Sigmod E. F. Codd Innovations award (2006), the IEEE von
Neumann medal (2010), and the NEC C&C Foundation Prize (2017).
He is the author of 16 books, including books
on database systems, compilers, automata theory, and algorithms.
