    Mansur Arief

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Aeronautics and Astronautics

    BioI am a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford Intelligent Systems Lab (SISL). I received my Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon in 2023 and a master's degree in Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Much of my work combines machine learning and rare-event theories to efficiently simulate rare catastrophic events. The applications of this line of work include the accelerated testing of intelligent systems. Currently, I am working on AI for safety and sustainability projects, which merge efficient simulation frameworks with optimization and decision-making algorithms.

    Anthony Corso

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Aeronautics and Astronautics

    BioAnthony is a postdoctoral researcher in the Aeronautics and Astronautics Department at Stanford University where he is advised by Professor Mykel Kochenderfer in the Stanford Intelligent Systems Laboratory (SISL) and he is the executive director of the Stanford Center for AI Safety. His research is focused on the use of algorithmic decision-making for safety-critical applications, emphasizing the creation of robust, reliable autonomous systems. He has developed algorithms for the validation and verification of complex autonomous systems such as autonomous vehicles and aviation subsystems. More recently he has applied algorithmic decision making to low-carbon earth resource projects for storing carbon, producing renewable energy, and storing renewable fuels.In 2014 he received a B.S. in physics from Harvey Mudd College with an emphasis on computational methods and in 2016 he received his Master’s in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford. He is a recipient of the Stanford Graduate Fellowship and the Nicholas J. Hoff award for outstanding performance as a Master’s Student.

    Carlos Gonzalez Hernandez

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Aeronautics and Astronautics

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHe has worked on high-speed flows and wall-bounded turbulence. In particular, he is interested in the application of quasilinear and generalized quasilinear approximations to the study of wall-bounded turbulent flows. At Stanford, he works on hypersonics and data-driven methods, among others.
