Officer in two physics minority engagement clubs, I've done a bunch of outreach, volunteered at a cancer hospital for a year, have volunteered as an observer for a cosmological survey for a significant number of nights Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: Fluent in Russian, which comes in handy more often than I'd expected. I take acting and improv classes and actively work on my public speaking skills, so my talks generally receive praise. I have a massive amount of writing experience compared to most applicants.
Ben Challis Ben Challis is a composer, performer and technologist. With research interests that embrace the notion of design-for-all within music-performance, he has worked on various projects that explore alternative modes of interaction with sound and music for people with specific individual needs.
As a performer, he works with these same technologies, exploring their creative and expressive potential within free-improvisation.
As composer he has composed scores for film and theatre productions. After doing a mathematics degree, and a Master's thesis on split-brain neuropsychology, Brian joined the New Zealand Army, where he was the first specialist to complete regular army officer cadet training.
He worked as an army psychologist, and then in computer operational simulations wargameswhile simultaneously raising four wonderful children, until he retired in as a Major. Brian Tu delft thesis presentation completed his doctorate on online groups, and students at his university used the social voting system he built until the World Wide Web arrived.
More recently, he was the senior editor of the Handbook of Research on Socio-Technical Design and Social Networking Systems, written by over a hundred leading experts worldwide.
His interests include computing, psychology, quantum theory and motor-cycle riding. Her current activities concentrate on designing for personal, social and societal transformation, with a special focus on health and well-being.
She designs for transformation based on the aesthetics of interaction with open, disruptive innovative systems within a societal context. Moreover, she is a designer-researcher with extensive experience in interaction design, education and research-trough design.
She has developed various research prototypes and installations next to design methods, techniques and processes. Moreover, she has been a member of a variety of international program committees and national Think Tanks sinceand has given a large number of keynote speeches, invited lectures and workshops at conferences, international universities and for industry world wide.
His research interests are where human-computer interaction and software engineering intersect. Most of his current projects aim to help software users to create code for themselves, and to effectively share that code with one another.
Among the 15 M. He is the architect of, and the world's foremost authority on, disruptive innovation. Consistently acknowledged in rankings and surveys as one of the world's leading thinkers on innovation, his research has been applied to national economies, start-up and Fortune 50 companies, as well as to early and late stage investing.
His seminal book The Innovator's Dilemmawhich first outlined his disruptive innovation frameworks, received the Global Business Book Award for the Best Business Book of the Year inwas a New York Times bestseller, has been translated into over 10 languages, and is sold in over 25 countries.
Christensen has recently focused his innovation lens on two of our most vexing social issues, education and health care. The Innovator's Prescription examines how to fix the problems facing healthcare. So as to further examine and apply his frameworks to the social sector, Christensen founded Innosight Institute, a non-profit think tank, in Christensen also applies his frameworks via management consultancy Innosight which he co-founded inand Rose Park Advisors, an investment firm he founded in Christensen was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in He graduated with highest honors in economics from Brigham Young University in Later, he received an M.
In he was a White House fellow, serving as an assistant to U. Inhe was awarded a DBA from the Harvard Business School, receiving the Best Dissertation Award from the Institute of Management Sciences for his doctoral thesis on technology development in the disk drive industry. Professor Christensen is committed to both community and church.
In addition to his stint as a White House Fellow, he was an elected member of the Belmont Town Council for 8 years, and has served the Boy Scouts of America for 25 years as a scoutmaster, cub master, den leader and troop and pack committee chairman.
He also worked as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Republic of Korea from tospeaks fluent Korean, and is currently a leader in his church. He and his wife Christine live in Belmont, MA. They are the parents of five children, and have three grandchildren.
Over the past 25 years, Prof.
In the beginning of the '90s he introduced the concept and principles of Design for All in Human-Machine Interaction and for Universal Access in the evolving Information Society. He has published more than technical papers in scientific archival journals, proceedings of international conferences and workshops related to his fields of expertise.
He is the Editor and co- author of 14 out of the 30 chapters of the book " User Interfaces for All - concepts, methods and tools" published by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates Since he is the General Chair of the HCI International Conference, that takes place every two years with around 2, participants.
His main areas of interest are mobile and ubiquitous computing, usability evaluation methodology, user-centered design, and the philosophy of interaction.Reduce Risk. Next Ocean predicts when and where high waves occur.
This enables offshore operators to choose an optimal time window free of high waves for the most critical phase of their operation rather than wait for better conditions or ‘hope’ for the best.

International Conference and Workshop: Plastics in Modern Movement Interiors Conservation and (re-) Design of Synthetic Finishing, Furniture and Products. Both, CMOS FinFET and FD-SOI are the enabling technology that allows nanoscale CMOS beyond 20nm.
This technological revolution does not only allow highest integration density for high volume products at low cost. The goal of DESIGN Conference (DESIGN ) is to bring together researchers and practitioners who have worked on or thought about engineering and industrial design from a variety of perspectives, disciplines, and fields: engineering, aesthetics, ergonomics, psychology, sociology and the like.
The European Commission has awarded million Euros to a four-year collaborative project on data-driven design of cells and microbial communities for applications ranging from human health to sustainable production of chemicals.
