TEDxSB - Jeannie A. Stamberger - Space In the Clouds

Jeannie's work is creating highly-adopted technology and practices through facilitating user-centered design research and development at the intersection of technical and field disciplines. Her biology research background inspires her successful unique approach to technological problems ranging from: disaster management (Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley, Disaster Management Initiative), interface/software design for outdoor environments and data processing (BioACT), Human Computer Interaction Group, InfoLab at the Stanford Computer Science Department) to facilitating cost-effective civil engineering designs for multi-million dollar infrastructure projects (Delta Risk Management Strategy, California Department of Water Resources). Recently, she organized CrisisCampSiliconValley March 26-28, 2010, NASA Ames Research Park, which generated requirements and grant-writing teams for improved disaster response in the Bay Area. Jeannie is a Visiting Scientist in the Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley CyMobility Lab Disaster Management Initiative (NASA Ames Research Park, Moffett Field, CA) and Senior Biologist at the civil engineering firm, URS Corporation, Oakland CA. Her awards cross computer science and biology disciplines and include Random Hacks of Kindness hack-a-thon (Tweak the Tweet -- Twitter syntax modifying behavior to get increased and parsable data from the ground), IEEE-ACM Vannevar Bush Best Student Paper, and an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Grant. Jeannie received her PhD in Biological Sciences at Stanford University elucidating organism evolutionary and adaptive responses to frequencies of temperature change embedded in rising average global temperatures. During her 4-year undergraduate degree she took undergraduate and graduate courses at Illinois Wesleyan University, Pemberton College, Oxford University (England), University of Washington and University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Jeannie grew up in Switzerland and the Midwest, and is a violinist. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
