Meeting all the amazing, smart, talented people in EE! Not only are people so kind here but there's an overwhelming sense of wanting to do good for the world and that feeling is very contagious and inspiring. I'm so grateful to be able to go to school here and to be able to work for my current lab, where we are innovating and improving the way doctors diagnosis cancer patients through biomedical data science and radiology-pathology fusion.

Prof. Erwin Hahn (1921-2016; UC Berkeley) visiting the lab of Prof. Yoshihisa Yamamoto in the old Ginzton Lab building on 14 November 2009.

Hahn was the inventor of the "Hahn echo" in 1950, which was first realized with microwave pulses, and had recently been implemented in the Yamamoto Lab using ultrafast optical pulses, almost 60 years after Hahn's original discovery.

I came to Stanford as a graduate student in 1966, left with my PhD, and returned on the faculty in 1971. I can remember driving (and parking!) on Lomita Drive in front of McCullough EE building. There's been much change over those years, but the fantastic, welcoming department I came to so long ago still has those qualities. Here's to the next 125 years! One last fun fact: Prof. Harry Rathbun, for whom the Rathbun Lecture series is named did his Stanford Masters degree in EE. Rathbun Lecturers have included Sandra Day O'Connor, George Shultz, the Dalai Lama, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. While I only knew Harry late in his life, in the 1980's, he was a powerful, positive influence in my life.

It was a cold winter evening when I came upon this scene at Packard's second floor lobby. A group of fellow EE grad students were pouring vodka and invited me to join them. Even though I barely knew them, we had something important in common. We had just finished taking our quals and that called for celebration indeed!
