  • Net Energy Analysis and Transitions to Low-carbon Energy SystemsAll proposed transitions to more sustainable energy systems require the growth of a variety of different low-carbon technologies. Some of these, such as photovoltaics (PV), contribute with a net energy surplus returned to society. Other technologies, including carbon capture and storage (CCS) and batteries, in some ways act as net ...

  • Radar GlaciologyRadio echo sounding is a uniquely powerful geophysical technique for studying the interior of ice sheets, glaciers, and icy planetary bodies. It can provide broad coverage and deep penetration as well as interpretable ice thickness, basal topography, and englacial radio stratigraphy. However, despite the long tradition of glaciological interpretation of ...

  • Decarbonization of Residential Space and Water Heating in CaliforniaAchieving deep decarbonization goals will require a transition away from fossil fuels for residential space and water heating. While many options are available to decarbonize this sector, electrification appears to be the most promising. In this presentation, Imran Sheikh will share analysis of what widespread electrification of heating would mean ...

  • Deep Learning in Speech Recognition
    While neural networks had been used in speech recognition in the early 1990s, they did not outperform the traditional machine learning approaches until 2010, when Alex's team members at Microsoft Research demonstrated the superiority of Deep Neural Networks (DNN) for large vocabulary speech recognition systems. The speech community rapidly adopted ...

  • Aliens in our Rocky ReefsFinding an eel amongst the immense boulder and cobble habitats in southern California may seem like trying to find a needle in a haystack. However, we have discovered that if you bait the traps, morays will come. Since 2010, my lab has been slowly uncovering the natural history of moray ...

  • SETI Talks: Kepler, K2, and Beyond: The Era of Exoplanets Has Arrived!NASA’s Kepler space telescope was launched in 2009 and measured the brightness of 200,000 stars at unprecedented precision for over four years, with the prime mission goal of detecting Earth-sized exoplanets. Now after another four, Kepler’s final planet catalog is complete --- over 4,000 planet candidates have been found, with ...

  • Taste of Science: Vaccines and Artificial BrainHow did we learn to walk?You have over 640 muscles and only 1 brain to control them. Have you ever wondered how you orchestrate this complicated system with such great precision?It's difficult to decompose a brain to single neurons to understand how it works. Instead, we designed a "simplified human" ...
