Terry Winograd

Professor Emeritus at Stanford University

Professor Winograd's focus is on human-computer interaction design and the design of technologies for development. He is on a number of journal editorial boards, including Human Computer Interaction, ACM Transactions on Computer Human Interaction, and Informatica. He has advised a number of companies started by his students, including Google. In 2011 he received the ACM SIGCHI Lifetime Research Award.

Carl Feinstein

Professor Emeritus at Stanford University

Dr. Feinstein's clinical focus is towards child and adolescent psychiatry, and the psychotherapeutic processes.

Peter Tonellato

Associate Professor

Dr. Tonellato’ s research focus is to apply the methods of biomedical informatics, mathematical modeling, and simulations to characterize and predict the use of genetics in medical practice and public health.


Associate Professor

Paco has taught Cellular and Molecular Biology and Histology at the University of Jaén (Spain) since 1995, and has been Assistant Professor in Cellular Biology at the same university since 2002. He has a Ph.D. in Biology and a Master in Neurosciences and Behavioral Biology, and has published more than 50 papers in fields including molecular biology of DNA replication, mechanisms of oxidative stress in plants, cellular and molecular biology and histology of the central and peripheral nervous system -- including aging and neurodegeneration.

Peter Washington

Assistant Professor

Peter Washington’ s research interests include developing data science methods to support machine learning for health and wellbeing, crowdsourcing for precision health, and precise digital interventions, and applying these methods to a variety of healthcare problems.

Nick Haber

Associate Professor

Nick Haber co-founded the Autism Glass Project at Stanford, a research effort that employs wearable technology and computer vision in a tool for children with autism. Aside from such work on learning and therapeutic tools, he and his research group develop artificial intelligence systems meant to mimic and model the ways people learn early in life, exploring their environments through play, social interaction, and curiosity.

Maude David

Associate Professor

Maude joined the lab in January 2014 and namely studies the gut microbiome of children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) utilizing a large scale, crowd sourced clinical study approach. Her expertise are in microbiology, bioinformatics and genomics, using and integrating metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and metaproteomics to understand microbial community functions. She received her PhD in February 2010 from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon, University of Lyon, France, with Prof. T.M. Vogel, on the origin of the dehalogenases and bioremediation of chlorinated solvent. Her grad-school work focused on the bacterial adaptation to chlorinated compounds at the genome (evolution mechanisms) and community (bioremediation) level. After graduation, she became a post-doctoral fellow at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with Prof. Janet Jansson. Her work looked at the impact of climate change on soil microbial ecology and specifically at how altered precipitation affect carbon cycle using meta-“omics” analysis of microbial carbon cycling responses.
