While an undergrad, Kartik noticed that many leading scientists in EE were affiliated with Stanford. He recognizes Stanford's focus on deep theoretical innovations and applying theory to solve important practical challenges of the future. In October, Kartik will be presented with the 2015 Marconi Society Young Scholars Award.
Alumni Himanshu Asnani, PhD, is passionate about Electrical Engineering. Fascinated by physics in high school, he began developing his expertise in communication systems, and eventually chose it as his doctoral research area. In addition to completion of his PhD, Himanshu also received the Marconi Society Young Scholars Award in 2014.
EE is the perfect fit for problem-solver Miles Bennett. Seeking a union of his interests, he chose EE for its intellectually stimulating combination of applied mathematics, physics, and computer science. For Miles, EE was the answer to his quest for a comprehensive program.
Electrical Engineering Professor Juan Rivas-Davila loves being in the midst of top-notch Stanford students, world-class research facilities and within a community brimming with entrepreneurial attitudes.
Maisy Wieman (Coterm BS '14, MS '15) is a lover of math. Discovering the potential of EE through the "amazing intro-level classes offered by the department," she earned her BS in 2014 and will complete her MS in 2015. Her interests include public speaking and she is a co-founder of "Fuse," a group for EE undergraduates.
Kleiner Perkins, Mayfield, and Sequoia Capital Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Nick McKeown had an early passion for engineering despite advice from his UK high school counselor to do "something creative" instead. Since then, he's become a world-renowned expert in techniques to improve the Internet.
Passionate fifth-year PhD student Jaime Lien considers herself "lucky" to be a founding member and current president of the Stanford Graduate Students in Electrical Engineering (GSEE) student organization. She is also busy working toward her dream of a career in signal and image processing technology.
