ESP Biography



STACEY HUANG, PhD candidate in Electrical Engineering




Major: Electrical Engineering

College/Employer: Stanford

Year of Graduation: Not available.

Picture of Stacey Huang

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I love learning more about how the world works. Building RC cars and learning languages were two early hobbies of mine, and that's how I discovered my interest in both engineering and communication (whether scientific or linguistic or anything in between!).

I'm now at Stanford as a PhD student in Electrical Engineering working on new ways to analyze radar images. It involves looking at lots of pretty pictures of the Earth, which is great. The natural world is full of wonder!

E6618: Build Your Own Speaker in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Each student will build a simple styrofoam cup speaker. We will learn about sound, audio signals, how speakers work, and basic circuits. This class is run by the Stanford Women in Electrical Engineering group.


H6288: Linguistic Archaeology: Uncovering Japan through Language in Splash Spring 2018 (May. 05 - 06, 2018)
92 symbols, 2200 characters, and 4400 pronunciations. That’s about the bare minimum any native Japanese speaker knows. Japanese is notoriously difficult to learn, and its writing system is understood to be one of the most complex in the world. But it is this complexity that makes Japanese flexible in a distinct way compared to its linguistic cousins. Why does Japanese use both alphabets (like Korean) and logographs (like Chinese)? How are new words introduced? And how can we use that to understand Japanese culture? Using the Japanese language as a unique lens, we will explore the role of language as both a symbol of power and a living part of history. We will take a journey through time, hunting down idiosyncrasies of the Japanese language and how they came to be. We will conclude with interesting (and tasty!) real-life examples of Japanese words that have evolved through time and cultures, extending even beyond the Japanese language. Familiarity with basic Japanese and/or Chinese helpful, but no prior experience needed.


E6316: Build Your Own Speaker! in Splash Spring 2018 (May. 05 - 06, 2018)
In this class, you will learn about electricity and sound! We will discuss how electric signals get magically converted into sound waves in a speaker. And the best part, we will build our own speaker!


E5966: Build your own speaker! in Splash Fall 2017 (Nov. 11 - 12, 2017)
In this class, you will learn about electricity and sound! We will discuss how electric signals get magically converted into sound waves in a speaker. And the best part, we will build our own speaker!

E5174: Build Your Own Speaker in Splash Fall 2016 (Dec. 03 - 04, 2016)
