Professor Sangeeta Bhatia fist came to MIT in 1991 as an MD/PhD student in HST. She started her faculty career at University of California at San Diego, returned to MIT in 2005 and is now the John J. and Dorothy Wilson Prof. in EECS and HST. She co-authored the first undergraduate textbook in Tissue Engineering and at MIT has taught 6.021 as well as various medical and graduate subjects for HST. Her research is focused on the use of micro- and nanotechnology to improve human health, specifically liver disease and cancer. She lives in Lexington with her husband (a professor) and two children. She enjoys, yoga, travel, and family game night.
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.


Mitchell Hwang is a MEng student studying electrical engineering and computer science. He concentrated in Korean and lived in Korea for a summer. He also interned as a firmware engineer at Samsara, and IoT company for industrial applications. For hobbies, he loves to play sports and dance. You might even catch him longboarding to classes as long as its not raining or snowing.
Kimberle Koile is a Lecturer in EECS. She completed her S.M. in EECS at MIT, worked in industry for a decade, then returned to MIT and in 2001 completed her AI-focused PhD on computer-aided architectural design with Randall Davis. She has been doing research and teaching at MIT since then. Her research has focused on building intelligent computational tools for complex human tasks, most recently building and studying the use of pen-based technology in education. She has taught 6.001 (Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs), 6.034 (Introduction to AI), 6.871 (Knowledge-based Application Systems), 6.UAR (Undergraduate Advanced Research), and 6.UAT. She enjoys doing therapy dog work with her golden retriever Kyla, woodworking, camping, reading science fiction, and learning about the latest computer game developments so she can keep up with her college-aged son who is majoring in that topic at RIT. She lives in Lexington with her husband, an MIT alum who works as an applied mathematician and software engineer at MathWorks.
Long Nguyen is a senior majoring in 6-3 with a concentration in the Korean language. He is interested in computer systems and loves playing the piano and classical guitar, though he currently has no idea whether his future entails working in industry, being a stay-at-home dad, or backpacking throughout Southeast Asia. He loves all things romantic and is well-versed in the art of gaming: Witcher 3, Horizon Zero Dawn, Kingdom Hearts... need he say more? He hopes to have an impact on our students here in 6.UAT.
Anuhya Vajapey is a current MEng student in the Clinical Decision Making Group at CSAIL. Outside of academics, she loves being active by running, playing tennis, and doing karate. An avid music lover, she likes singing and playing drum set in a band.
Luis Fernando Velasquez is a Principal Scientist with the Microsystems Technology Laboratories of MIT. He is a microfabrication expert and a MEMS expert. He leads a group that conducts research on micro and nano enabled multiplexed scaled-down systems for space, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, and analytical applications that exploit high-electric field phenomena, e.g., electrospray, electrospinning, electron impact ionization, field emission, field ionization, plasmas, and X-rays. He was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. He received is BS degrees from Los Andes University and his MS and PhD degrees from MIT.
Linda Zhang is a Course 6 M.Eng student interested in economic public policy. She enjoys glass blowing, wandering, acquiring Texas-themed memorabilia, and being uncomfortable (generally in that order). She also collects stories.
