This summer, I am helping coordinate a Controls Salon to explore controls-related formulations, approaches, paradigms, viewpoints, etc. that could be applicable to a number of research agendas. A large focus will be on recent and not-so-recent "seminal" papers in the field, but we will also investigate relevant survey papers and book chapters. The full Salon schedule is located here.
I am part of the Engineering Outreach @Berkeley organization which seeks to bring engineering demonstrations and presentations to K-12 students. Our goal is to share our excitement for the research we do at a level accessible to K-12 students as well as to present ourselves as examples of careers in engineering. Check out our website for more information: http://www-inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~eegsa/or/index.html.
Finding housing in Berkeley can be a bit tricky. If you are a new graduate student, post-doc, visiting scholar, or anyone else moving to the Berkeley area, check out Yusef Shafi's excellent guide to finding housing in Berkeley and the surrounding neighborhoods.
I have led and created material for two Supplemental Instruction courses (referred to as PLUS courses at Georgia Tech). Below is the material I developed for these classes, which serves a mostly archival purpose now.
