Professor Zheng received the TR35 Award from the MIT Technology Review (2013), one of the 100 Leading Global Thinkers by the Foreign Policy Magazine (2013), 3M Nontenured Faculty Grant Award (2013), the Presidential Early Career Award (PECASE) from the white house (2009), Young Investigator Awards from the ONR (2008), DARPA (2008), Terman Fellowship from Stanford (2007), and Bernard Lewis Fellowship from the Combustion Institute (2004).
Roseanna N. Zia
Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Mechanical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Zia group seeks to unite the deeply connected fields of suspension mechanics and cell biology, to show the role of physics in biological cell fitness. With theory and computation we ask:
1. Is Brownian motion alone sufficient to power life-essential processes in biological cells, and how does this connect cell fitness or even to the origin of life?
2. Do colloidal phase transitions really arrest?
3. Can Einstein's fluctuation-dissipation theory be expanded well beyond equilibrium?
BioDr. Stephen Zoepf is the Executive Director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford. He holds a Ph.D., M.Sc. and B.Sc. from MIT. His interests are in future mobility, shared vehicle systems, transportation energy usage and policy. He has eight years of experience in the automotive industry as an engineer and product manager at BMW and Ford, and previously led U.S. Department of Transportation efforts to integrate confidential data submissions efforts into national vehicle energy policy modeling efforts. He was an ENI Energy Initiative Fellow and a Martin Energy Fellow at MIT and a recipient of the Barry McNutt award from the Energy and Alternative Fuels Committees of the Transportation Research Board. He also won the Singapore Global Challenge, Global Young Scientists Summit@one-north in 2013 and was a recipient of MIT's Infinite Mile Award for Outstanding Service to the Institute.'
