To invent the first commercially viable electric light bulb, Thomas Edison and his assistants tested thousands of materials to use for the filament until they found one that lasted long enough. This traditional “Edisonian” trial-and-error process of materials discovery is still fundamentally how we design materials almost 150 years later. However, through a method called “materials by design,” researchers can now avoid many of the expensive dead ends that slowed Edison down.

Visualizing Digital Scholarship at UC Berkeley — Communities, Content, and Services

UC Berkeley has recently embraced immersive visualization in the classroom, in research, and for public engagement.  While this extends across all campus disciplines and a number of technologies, a growing community is using photogrammetry to develop 3D visualizations of objects and places, both as digital documentation to answer new questions inextricably linked to materiality.  Dr.

Growing up in Anyang, in a central region of China greatly impacted by earthquakes, Qingkai Kong was inspired to do research in seismology precisely because earthquakes are serious natural hazards that affect communities worldwide. Berkeley’s proximity to the Hayward Fault influenced his decision to complete his graduate studies under Richard Allen at the UC Berkeley Seismology Lab.

BRC Supports Biostatisticians in Effort to Develop Software for Traumatic Injury Treatment and Outcome Predictions

Alan Hubbard and research group colleagues, Jan 2017

What do the Phanerozoic eon and Precision Medicine have in common? For one thing: the statistical analyses of Alan Hubbard, UC Berkeley Associate Professor of Biostatistics, and head of the Division of Biostatistics at the School of Public Health.
