  • Elizabeth Wig

    Elizabeth Wig

    Ph.D. Student in Electrical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2020

    BioHi, I’m Elizabeth Wig! I’m a PhD student in electrical engineering at Stanford, and I research how we can use radar remote sensing to understand more about processes on Earth. I work mainly on InSAR (interferometric synthetic aperture radar), which looks at how radar phase changes from one image to another to tell us how Earth is changing. I’m particularly interested in measuring how vegetation and soil moisture change in dynamic environments, like agricultural areas and permafrost regions. My favorite types of problems involve modeling how electromagnetic waves interact with their environment, and then combining those models with real-world data to learn more about the environment by analyzing the waves that pass through it.

  • Jeffrey P. Wilde

    Jeffrey P. Wilde

    Affiliate, Electrical Engineering - Solid State Photonics Laboratory

    BioJeffrey P. Wilde received a Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics from Stanford University, with thesis work in the area of holographic data storage. In 1996, he co-founded Quinta Corporation to develop high-capacity optical disk drive technology; the company was acquired by Seagate Technology in 1997, and he subsequently served as the Director of Research West for Seagate. In 2000 he co-founded Capella Photonics, a manufacturer of wavelength switching products for the telecommunications industry. Capella was acquired by Alcatel-Lucent in 2013.

    Since 2005 he has provided optical design consulting services to numerous companies, as well as serving as a Research Consultant with Ginzton Laboratory at Stanford University, where he has participated in research on advanced fiber communication technologies, optical superresolution imaging, and helped establish a program on X-ray phase-contrast imaging for security applications. He has also served as an adjunct lecturer for EE236A (Modern Optics) and EE347 (Optical Methods in Engineering Science, aka Lens Design). Dr. Wilde has 31 journal publications, 39 issued US patents, and is a Senior Member of OSA.
