ORGANIZATIONS, TECHNOLOGY, ENTREPRENEURSHIP

“In our work so far, it’s been amazing to watch how quickly a group of people from around the world come together to complete complex projects.”

Sharad Goel

COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE

“I want to go beyond understanding how systems function; I want to act on those insights to design better systems. To me, that’s what engineering is all about.”

Jose Blanchet

OPTIMIZATION THEORY AND ALGORITHMS

"I started to re-adjust and research things that I thought would be exciting and appropriate for the Stanford environment and the valley. This is for me, in many ways, like being born again in terms of the types of research that I’m pursuing."
