Dr. Suppes is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.
Rui Wang received her B.S and M.S degrees from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. She received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University in 2011. She is working at Suppes Brain Lab, as Research Associate, on statistical signal processing methods for recognizing brainwaves of speech stimuli. She is also interested in speech signal processing and automatic speech recognition.
Claudio G. Carvalhaes received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the Universidade Federal Fluminense, Niteroi, RJ, Brazil. He is currently an Associate Professor with the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics at Rio de Janeiro State University, RJ, Brazil, and a Visiting Associate Professor at the Center for the Study of Language and Information at Stanford University. His research interests include the physics-EEG interface, theoretical physics, and interdisciplinary fields.
Michelle U. Nguyen received her B.S. degree in Biochemistry from the University of California, Davis, in 1986, and her M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University, in Santa Clara, CA, in 2004. She obtained her license in Marriage and Family Therapy from the state of California in 2009, and is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists.
Michelle is currently working in the lab on brain studies of the expression of emotion in the language of couples in therapy. This research includes detailed analysis of couples' behavior as recorded in videos.
Jose Acacio de Barros is an Assistant Professor at San Francisco State University's Liberal Studies Program since Fall 2007. Before coming to SFSU, he was a Visiting Associate Professor at the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI), Stanford University, and an Associate Professor of Physics at the Federal University of Juiz de Fora, Brazil.
Most of his research is in foundations of physics, in particular the foundations of quantum mechanics, and the physics of biological systems. He is also interested in research in physics education.
Xiaofang Yang received her B.A. degree in English from Tianjin Foreign Studies University in 2011, and her M.A. in Computational Linguistics from Tsinghua University in 2014. She is currently working at the Suppes Brain Lab, as a Research Associate, on the recognition of emotion in naturally occurring speech. She has a strong appetite for natural languages and also a profound interest in cognitive neurosciences and biomedical engineering.
Duc Nguyen received her B.S. in Bioengineering (Premedical) from the University of California, San Diego. With three years of research and programming experience at UCSD and expertises in small animal surgeries, she is now a Research Assistant at Suppes Brain Lab. She runs EEG experiments for the psychotherapists and Research Associates in emotion and phonemes classifications. Duc maintains the lab and the experimental equipment and software and assists in the creation of the visual and auditory stimuli and analysis programs.
Blair Bohannan Kaneshiro received her B.A. in Music, M.A. in Music, Science, and Technology, and M.S. in Electrical Engineering, all from Stanford. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). Research interests: Single-trial classification of EEG signals; musical harmony, meter, and tempo; categorical representation; signal-processing methods for EEG data.
Logan Grosneick received bachelors degrees with honors in Biology and Psychology from Stanford, and a Masters in Statistics from Stanford. He is currently a Ph. D. candidate in the Neurosciences Program and a trainee at the Stanford Center for Mind, Brain, and Computation. He is interested in developing and applying novel computational and imaging techniques for observing, controlling, and understanding neuronal circuit dynamics.
Colleen E. Crangle received her M.Sc.degree in computer science from the University of South Africa and a Ph.D. in philosophy from Stanford University. Her research focuses on the intersection of language, computation, and biomedicine. In the Suppes Brain Lab she is working on studies of semantics and the brain. She co-authored the book Language and Learning for Robots (CSLI Publications,1994) with Patrick Suppes.
