Lynn Loo *01,
Associate Professor Previous position:Assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin Education: Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Princeton; B.S.E from the University of Pennsylvania Research: Soft, complex systems, including block copolymers and polymer blends, organic conducting and semiconducting materials and self-assembled monolayers. She received the Beckman Young Investigator Award in 2005 and in 2004 was named one of Technology Review's Top 100 innovators.
Assistant Professor Previous position: Postdoctoral fellow at the Life Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Education: Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins University; S.B. in both chemical engineering and biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Research: Her Tissue Morphodynamics Laboratory at Princeton conducts research on the dynamic processes that control tissue development. This year she received the Burroughs Wellcome Career Award at the Scientific Interface.
Civil and Environmental Engineering
Assistant Professor Previous position: Postdoctoral researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology- Lausanne Education: Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins in environmental engineering; B.S.E. from the American University of Beirut Research: Boundary layer meteorology, distributed and remote sensing techniques, multi-scale environmental flows and large eddy simulation
Assistant Professor Previous position: Assistant professor in the department of geography at Indiana University; from 2003 to 2005, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton Education: Ph.D. and B.A. in environmental sciences from the University of Virginia Research: Ecohydrology, savanna ecology, surface hydrology, and ecological modeling
Assistant Professor Education: Ph.D. from New York University; S.B. and M.Eng. in computer science and engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Research: Distributed systems, security, networking and cryptography. He developed and operates the Coral peer-to-peer content distribution network and OASIS anycast service, which serves more than 1 million users daily.
Assistant Professor Previous position: Faculty fellow and lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University Education: Ph.D. in Applied Physics at Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria Research: Laser spectroscopy for trace gas detection. Part of his research concerns the design and development of tunable laser sources that can be used in spectroscopic sensing applications. His research expertise will be a key addition to the National Science Foundation's Engineering Research Center on Mid-Infrared Technologies for Health and the Environment (MIRTHE) based at Princeton.
Assistant Professor Education: Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stanford University Research: Her dissertation research on the problem of congestion control in networks led to a novel file transfer protocol that has attracted considerable attention. Dukkipati will fill an important teaching need in the area of networks and will strengthen Princeton's joint computer science/electrical engineering efforts in clean-slate wired and wireless network design.
