Spotlight Profiles

Sabera J. Talukder, B.S. '18

Control Systems, Bioengineering

As a double-major in electrical engineering and biochemistry, Sabera seeks to understand how the brain relies on various types of electrical and chemical feedback to influence thoughts, moods, and behaviors.

Professor Jelena Vuckovic

In high school, Jelena considered becoming a professor of math or physics. Later, as she pursued her PhD, she decided that her career should include both research and teaching.

Adrian Alabi, B.S. '16, M.S. '17

Communications Systems

Recalling Professor Pauly's lab, Adrian was captivated by being able to pick up a radio station from a signal that seemed to be static and noise. Adrian's interest in electronic devices and signal processing continues to grow, propelling him to pursue B.S. and M.S. degrees in the coterm program. 

Completing his M.S. in spring, his plan to help people connect is taking shape.

Professor David Tse

"My love of talking and always having an audience, helped cement my decision to become a professor," jokes David Tse.

Passionate about information theory, his research is solving massive problems that incorporate software and mathematics. David was recently announced as the 2017 Claude E. Shannon Award recipient.

Iliana Bray, B.S. '17

Signal Processing & Multimedia

Realizing her fascination with neuroscience in the 8th grade, Iliana is laying a strong foundation to pursue her dreams. As an EE major, Iliana finds balance through the arts, and helping other undergraduates have a great Stanford experience. She's president of Fuse, the EE undergraduate student group, and she is involved with several other student groups and committees.

Benjamin Tee, M.S. '07, PhD '13

Biomedical Devices and Sensors and Systems

Benjamin Tee, (MS '07, PhD '13), is listed in the MIT Technology Review's 35 Innovators Under 35, a prestigious listing of exceptionally talented technologists whose work has great potential to transform the world.

Professor Audrey Bowden

Choosing electrical engineering as an undergraduate, Audrey Bowden knew it would give her a strong technical foundation to be successful in any career. Combining her EE foundation with optics and biomedical engineering has resulted in her ideal environment. Today, Audrey's teaching and research reflects her commitment and passion to address critical societal challenges.

Professor Andrea Montanari

Pursuing a PhD in theoretical physics, Andrea Montanari pursued his passion of understanding how things work at a fundamental level. Today, his research aims to understand patterns in complex, high-dimensional data. He also helps students find pleasure in figuring out something new, or creating something from scratch!

Maneeshika Madduri, B.S. '13, M.S. '15

Energy (B.S.); Computer Hardware (M.S.)

Alumna Maneeshika Madduri (B.S. ‘13, M.S., ’15) embodies Stanford Engineering’s Mission through her research and work. Focusing her undergraduate studies on Energy, and her graduate studies on Computer Hardware, she is able to apply her knowledge to reach and help people in areas without a fully developed infrastructure.

Kartik Venkat, PhD '15

Information Theory & Applications

While an undergrad, Kartik noticed that many leading scientists in EE were affiliated with Stanford. As a Stanford student, he recognized Stanford's focus on deep theoretical innovations and applying theory to solve important practical challenges of the future. In October 2015, Kartik was presented with the 2015 Marconi Society Young Scholars Award.
