Personal bio
Daphne Koller received her BSc and MSc degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, and her PhD from Stanford University in 1993. She is now the Rajeev Motwani Professor in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. Her main research interest is in developing and using machine learning and probabilistic methods to model and analyze complex domains. Her current research projects include models in computational biology, computational medicine, and in extracting semantic meaning from sensor data of the physical world. Daphne Koller is the author of over 180 refereed publications, which have appeared in venues spanning Science, Nature Genetics, the Journal of Games and Economic Behavior, and a variety of conferences and journals in AI and Computer Science. She has received 9 best paper or best student paper awards, in conferences whose areas span computer vision, artificial intelligence, natural language, machine learning, and computational biology. She has given keynote talks at over 10 different major conferences. She was the program co-chair of the NIPS 2007 and UAI 2001 conferences, and has served on numerous program committees and as associate editor of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research, the Machine Learning Journal, and the Journal of Machine Learning Research. She was awarded the Arthur Samuel Thesis Award in 1994, the Sloan Foundation Faculty Fellowship in 1996, the ONR Young Investigator Award in 1998, the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) in 1999, the IJCAI Computers and Thought Award in 2001, the Cox Medal for excellence in fostering undergraduate research at Stanford in 2003, the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2004, the ACM/Infosys award in 2008, and was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering in 2011. Daphne Koller is the founder and leader of CURIS, Stanford's summer research experience for undergraduates in computer science -- a program that has trained more than 500 students in its decade of existence. She also initiated the interdisciplinary major in Biomedical Computation at Stanford, which she still co-leads with Professor Russ Altman; since its inception in 2001, the program has graduated over 55 students, many of whom have continued on to graduate studies. She has also been a leader in developing and trying out new models for online education and for using these technologies to offer a better learning experience to students within and outside of Stanford. Daphne enjoys traveling, diving, reading, and spending time with her family.
