Louis Braida (Area VII) is Henry Ellis Warren Professor of Engineering
Engineering and Computer Science and of Health Sciences and Technology at
MIT. His research is currently focused on aids for the deaf: hearing aids,
tactile aids, cochlear implants, and cued speech. He developed and is
responsible for 6.182 and 6.552. In addition, he has lectured 6.001,
6.002, 6.071, and 6.551. He very much enjoyed teaching 6.UAT in the
Fall, 2004. He is currently Chair of the Bioelectrical Engineering Area
of the EECS Department and Co-Director of the Speech and Hearing
Bioscience and Technology Program of the Harvard-M.I.T. Division of
Health Sciences and Technology.
Tony Eng(Area II) finished his degrees at MIT and
is now a Senior Lecturer in EECS. He has been involved with 6.001 (Structure
and Interpretation of Computer Programs) for a number of years, and
now heads 6.UAT. He has also taught various other courses in entrepreneurship and oral communication. His background (Computer Science, Biology, and Math), and his previous areas of research (Networking, Cryptography, Computation and Biology, and Text Mining) are symptomatic of an individual who gets bored
easily. He has a passion for learning about and trying new things; an explorer and dilettante at heart, he'll try most things twice.
Kimberle Koile has focused over the past 25 years on building intelligent computational tools for complex human tasks. Her research interests include educational technology (pen-based computing in particular), assessment, teacher professional development, ubiquitous computing, knowledge-based systems, human-computer interaction, and computer-aided design. In her current project, INK-12: Teaching and Learning Using Interactive Ink Inscriptions, she and her group are developing a pen-based wireless classroom interaction system and investigating, with co-PI Andee Rubin of TERC, how such technology can support teaching and learning math in upper elementary classrooms. Prior work with the technology focused on middle school science and math, undergraduate computer science, and undergraduate chemistry.
Leslie Kolodziejski (Faculty Chair for Areas IV and V) is
the principal investigator for the Integrated Photonic Devices and Materials
Group within the Research Laboratory of Electronics. Professor Kolodziejski
joined EECS at MIT in 1988 as Assistant Professor following two years as
Assistant Professor at Purdue University. She obtained all of her education from
Purdue: a BS in 1983 and a MS in 1984 in Materials Science, and a PhD in 1986 in
Electrical Engineering, Her research interests include: compound semiconductor
materials, novel heterostructures, devices and device physics, heteroepitaxial
growth processes and advanced fabrication technology, optoelectronic and
photonic devices. She supervises two research labs located in Bldgs. 38 and 36
using molecular beam and ion beam deposition techniques to layer materials
atom-by-atom. After work, Leslie very much enjoys the twists and turns, ups and
downs of raising her 9 year old son and 7 year old daughter.
Joe Steinmeyer did his undergraduate studies in EECS at the University
of Michigan, Ann Arbor where he worked with Professor Michel Maharbiz
on BioMEMS-related research. He graduated from U of M in 2008. He
subsequently came to MIT and got his MS and PhD also in EECS/Course 6
in 2010 and 2014, respectively, while carrying out research focussed
on the development of automation techniques for neuroscience. He's
also spent a lot of time working on/in education both at the college
and pre-college level. Since 2014 he has held an appointment as
lecturer in Course 6 here at MIT and has been involved in 6.01,
6.021/.521, 6.302, and now for the first time this fall, 6.UAT, which
he's excited to be participating in.
Professor Collin M. Stultz is a principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His group conducts research to understand conformational changes in macromolecules and the effect of structural transitions on common human disease. Prof. Stultz employs an interdisciplinary approach that utilizes techniques drawn from computational chemistry, signal processing, and basic biochemistry. He received the AB from Harvard College in 1988, and the MD from Harvard Medical School as well as the PhD in Biophysics from Havard in 1997. Professor Stultz is a faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Institute of Medical Engineering and Science (IMES). In his spare time Prof. Stultz enjoys baseball, jazz, and heavy metal music.
Emily Zhang is doing her M.Eng under Prof. Michael Cuthbert in computational musicology. She is working on creating data structures to represent "music", which can then be used to solve some of musicology's biggest questions (e.g. "Did composer X write this, or did his apprentice?"). When not in class, you can usually find her cooking and feeding other people, at the gym, or in the World Music Room. Talk to her in English, Chinese, Spanish, or Russian, or write to her in Latin.
