Assistant Professor,  Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science, UC Berkeley
February 2
at lunch  in Room
[location to be arranged]

 

Anca Dragan, an assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science at UC Berkeley, will speak with TL students at TLTalks, a special guest speaker series developed by Academic Excellence on Feb 2. (location t.b.a) MIT Review acknowledged her "work to distill complicated or vague human behavior into simple mathematical models that robots can understand. She says many conflicts that arise when humans and robots try to work together come from a lack of transparency about each other’s intentions. Teaching a robot to understand how it might influence a person’s behavior could solve that. One pressing application for this work is in helping self-driving cars and human-driven cars to anticipate each other’s next moves."

Marin Science Semminar: Making Faces: Developmental Mechanisms of Craniofacial Evolution

skulls1sm.jpg

 “Making Faces: Developmental Mechanisms of Craniofacial Evolution” Dr. Schneider will overview experiments in his laboratory that have revealed molecular and cellular processes involved in facial patterning. He will describe how his studies to understand the basis for skull shape in breeds of dogs led him to create a cell transplant system whereby duck embryos develop with quail beaks. He will bring an assortment of skulls.Get the flyer here. (November 15, 2017; Previously: 9/10/14, 10/2011, 10/2009)

To study skeletal patterning, Dr. Schneider designed an avian transplantation system using quail and duck embryos, which differ considerably in their growth rates and anatomies. The experimental approach is simple: cells are exchanged between quail and duck embryos. This causes faster developing quail cells and relatively slower maturing duck cells to interact with one another continuously from the moment they first meet. Also, chimeras are challenged to deal with species-specific differences in size and shape. By looking for donor-induced changes to the formation of bone, cartilage, and other tissues, Dr. Schneider’s lab has been able to identify mechanisms that pattern the skeleton, and elucidate the role of development in evolution. A long-term goal of his research is to build a foundation for molecular-based therapies that can induce repair and regeneration of cartilages and bones affected by congenital defects, disease, and injury.

Dr. Schneider graduated from Hampshire College in 1991. As an undergraduate, he published his first paper, which was on skull evolution in domestic dogs, following an internship at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. He received his Master's Degree in 1994 and his PhD in 1998 from Duke University. He also studied embryology at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA, and at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island, NY. For his Postdoctoral work at the UCSF, Dr. Schenider investigated molecular mechanisms that pattern the craniofacial skeleton. In 2001, he joined the faculty of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at UCSF.

Marin Science Seminar: "Flooded by Science and Seawater: King Tides &What they Can Tell us about Sea Level Rise at China Camp State Park" with Sarah Ferner

china.jpg

The tidal marshes at China Camp State Park play a key role in helping scientists understand how marshes respond to sea level rise and how we can continue to protect them. In this talk, we will hear about what scientists have learned so far and how they are learning more through research right here in Marin.

Sarah Ferner develops, leads, and teaches education programs for NOAA’s National Estuarine Research Reserve System in San Francisco Bay. As the Reserve’s first Education Coordinator, her job tasks are diverse - ranging from writing for publications and interpretive signs, to teaching teachers about new Next Generation Science Standards, to counting plants deep within Suisun Marsh, and more. Through it all, she likes to traverse the muddy transitions between water and land, and between science and education, following her passion for connecting people to nature through science. She is a certified California Master Naturalist. Previously, Sarah worked closely with the Chesapeake Bay-Virginia NERR as a Graduate Research Fellow where she studied the vegetation community change in a tidal freshwater marsh. Sarah received a B.A. in Biology from Carleton College and an M.Sc. in Marine Science from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science/College of William and Mary, and has over 15 years of experience teaching science to students, community members, and educators.

      Marin Science: "Not Your Mother's Genes: How Maternal and Developmental Plasticity Shift Climate Change Responses in the Eelgrass Sea Hare" with Richelle Tanner, UC Berkeley's Integrative Biology

      Richelle is a PhD Candidate in UC Berkeley's Department of Inegrative Biology. She utilizes community ecology, population genetics, biomechanics, and physiology to answer questions about climate change effects in Phyllaplysia taylori, an estuarine sea hare living in eelgrass beds. Specifically, she is interested in how new populations of P. taylori colonize San Francisco Bay eelgrass restoration sites, as they play a large role in eelgrass ecosystem health. Her current work investigates maternal effects of temperature on larval development, latitudinal trends in thermal tolerance, and local adaptation. She also work with many types of Eastern Pacific nudibranchs and sea hares investigating similar questions. Prior to coming to UC Berkeley, Richelle finished her undergraduate degrees in environmental studies and jazz studies at the University of Southern California. Her undergraduate research projects investigated secondary productivity in subtidal eelgrass beds on Catalina Island, CA and the effects of historic climate change on temperature trends and the urban heat island effect in cities along the western edge of the United States.

      TL Maker Lab-Afterschool Enrichment Program

      TL Maker Lab will meet on Wednesdays from 2:45- 5 pm in the Engineering Tech Computer Room.  

      This Fall, TL Maker Lab will be meeting as an after school enrichment program instead of at lunch, so our students will have more time to make so really cool stuff! Roger Ruittman, VP of Technology at Dorsal, has generously agreed to again be our Guest Mentor for another year!  Many thanks, to our community partners like Hermes Econometrics whose generous gifts support this program created by TL Innovation Lab! 

      We look forward to posting about our e new and exciting projects that our students will make this year! Also, look for us again at the Maker Faire 2018! If you would like more information on how to become a project mentor please contact Maya Bartolf at maya.bartolf@gmail.com.
