BioOsgood is a mathematician by training and applies techniques from analysis and geometry to various engineering problems. He is interested in problems in imaging, pattern recognition, and signal processing.
Daniel J O'Shea
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Electrical Engineering
BioI am currently pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience with Krishna Shenoy in the Neural Prosthetics Systems lab. I am interested the neural basis of movement and motor feedback control. Towards this end, I am engaged in collaborative research employing multielectrode array recordings, optogenetic and electrical stimulation, haptic feedback devices, and high dimensional modeling of population dynamics.
Cadence Design Systems Professor and Professor of Electrical Engineering
BioKunle Olukotun is the Cadence Design Systems Professor in the School of Engineering and Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University. Olukotun is well known as a pioneer in multicore processor design and the leader of the Stanford Hydra chip mutlipocessor (CMP) research project. Olukotun founded Afara Websystems to develop high-throughput, low-power multicore processors for server systems. The Afara multicore processor, called Niagara, was acquired by Sun Microsystems. Niagara derived processors now power all Oracle SPARC-based servers. Olukotun currently directs the Stanford Pervasive Parallelism Lab (PPL), which seeks to proliferate the use of heterogeneous parallelism in all application areas using Domain Specific Languages (DSLs).

BioProfessor Okamura received the BS degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1994, and the MS and PhD degrees from Stanford University in 1996 and 2000, respectively, all in mechanical engineering. She is currently Professor in the mechanical engineering department at Stanford University. She was previously Professor and Vice Chair of mechanical engineering at Johns Hopkins University. She has been an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Haptics, an editor of the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation Conference Editorial Board, and co-chair of the IEEE Haptics Symposium. Her awards include the 2009 IEEE Technical Committee on Haptics Early Career Award, the 2005 IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Early Academic Career Award, and the 2004 NSF CAREER Award. She is an IEEE Fellow. Her academic interests include haptics, teleoperation, virtual environments and simulators, medical robotics, neuromechanics and rehabilitation, prosthetics, and engineering education. Outside academia, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, running, and playing ice hockey.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOusterhout's research ranges across a variety of topics in system software, software development tools, and user interfaces. His current focus is on large-scale datacenter storage systems. His past research projects include the Tcl scripting language and its companion GUI toolkit Tk, log-structured file systems, the Sprite network operating system, and integrated circuit design tools such as Magic and Crystal.
Ph.D. Student in Management Science and Engineering, admitted Spring 2012
BioMichael Ohlrogge is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Management Science & Engineering at Stanford University.
Research Area: Finance and Economics and Joint JD Candidate
Michael Ohlrogge produces innovative research at the intersection of law and finance, combining legal analysis with quantitative tools to tackle challenging issues that can only be addressed with a sophisticated, interdisciplinary approach. His research played a significant role in the decision by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to propose that public companies be allowed to comply with Dodd-Frank requirements to disclose median employee compensation by using statistical sampling techniques, reducing by orders of magnitude the compliance costs that firms face due to the new regulations.
Michael is currently studying ways that changes in state-level anti-predatory lending laws during the early and mid 2000s impacted the subprime securitization market. I am also researching ways that stochastic models of corporate bond default risk can be improved by incorporating information about changes in the bankruptcy laws corporations are subject to. Ultimately, his research seeks to build a better understanding of ways that legal changes impact financial markets, with a focus on systemic risk.
His areas of expertise include the following:
- Estimation of Median Employee Compensation and CEO Pay Ratio
- Statistical Sampling
- Statistical Analysis
- Financial Regulation
- Systemic Risk
Ayfer Ozgur Aydin
Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering
BioOzgur's research focuses on understanding the fundamental limits of communication in wireless networks and designing strategies that can approach these limits in practice. Her research combines tools and ideas from disciplines including information and coding theory, wireless communication, random matrix theory, graph theory, combinatorial and convex optimization.
Nicholas T. Ouellette
Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Environmental Complexity Lab studies self-organization in a variety of complex systems, ranging from turbulent fluid flows to granular materials to collective motion in animal groups. In all cases, we aim to characterize the macroscopic behavior, understand its origin in the microscopic dynamics, and ultimately harness it for engineering applications. Most of our projects are experimental, though we also use numerical simulation and mathematical modeling when appropriate. We specialize in high-speed, detailed imaging and statistical analysis.
Our current research includes studies of turbulence in two and three dimensions, with a focus on coherent structures and the geometry of turbulence; the transport of inertial, anisotropic, and active particles in turbulence; the erosion of granular beds by fluid flows and subsequent sediment transport; quantitative measurements of collective behavior in insect swarms and bird flocks; the stability of ocean ecosystems; neural signal processing; and uncovering the natural, self-organized spatiotemporal scales in urban systems.
