Jennifer Rexford ’91
Gordon Y.S. Wu Professor in Engineering. Professor of Computer Science. Chair, Department of Computer Science.

Jennifer joined the Computer Science Department at Princeton University in 2005 after eight years at AT&T Research. Her research focuses on computer networking, with the larger goal of making data networks easier to design, understand, and manage. Jennifer is co-author of the book Web Protocols and Practice: HTTP/1.1, Networking Protocols, Caching, and Traffic Measurement (Addison-Wesley, May 2001) and co-editor of She’s an Engineer? Princeton Alumnae Reflect (Princeton University, 1993). She received her BSE degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University in 1991, and her MSE and PhD degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of Michigan in 1993 and 1996, respectively. She was the winner of ACM’s Grace Murray Hopper Award for outstanding young computer professional of the year, and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering.



Jonathan Hanke *99

Jonathan Hanke *99 is a Consulting Mathematician, Data Scientist, and Entrepreneur with a background in algorithms, finance and software development. He has over 20 years of experience in academia and industry using computers to provide novel solutions to difficult problems, and has taught an annual Princeton freshman seminar since Fall 2015 on “Secrecy, Search and Society” exploring the social impact of algorithms, technology and policies on our evolving digital world. He also worked as a Senior Data Scientist at the Metis Data Science Bootcamp in NYC teaching the core technologies of Data Science/Machine Learning/Web Development, has contributed extensively to the open-source SAGE computer algebra system, and enjoys using the latest technologies to create a more productive world.

Since receiving his Ph.D. in Mathematics, Jonathan has lectured internationally and taught at Princeton, Duke, Rutgers, the Max Planck Institute and the University of Georgia, and his work has been recognized on the recent 2014 Fields Medal Prize of Manjul Bhargava. He also served as a Founding Trustee for the PROMYS Foundation supporting mathematics education and started a non-profit to improve the quality of mathematics education for low-income students. In industry he has worked as Associate Director of Research at INTECH Investment Management, Senior Data Scientist at Metis, Vice President in Credit and Enterprise Risk at Goldman Sachs, and most recently as a Senior Vice President in Risk Identification at Citi.


Michael Stonebraker ’65
Professor of Computer Science, M.I.T. 

Dr. Stonebraker has been a pioneer of data base research and technology for more than forty years.  He was the main architect of the INGRES relational DBMS, and the object-relational DBMS, POSTGRES.  These prototypes were developed at the University of California at Berkeley, where Stonebraker was a Professor of Computer Science for twenty-five years.  More recently at M.I.T. he was a co-architect of the Aurora/Borealis stream processing engine, the C-Store column-oriented DBMS, the H-Store transaction processing engine, the SciDB array DBMS and the Data Tamer data curation system. Presently he serves as Chief Technology Officer of Paradigm4 and Tamr, Inc.

Professor Stonebraker was awarded the ACM System Software Award in 1992 for his work on INGRES.  Additionally, he was awarded the first annual SIGMOD Innovation award in 1994, and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1997.  He was awarded the IEEE John Von Neumann award in 2005 and the 2014 Turing Award, and is presently an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at M.I.T.


Ijeoma Azodo ’00
Associate Director, Clinical and Health Service Design, NES Digital Service Scotland 

Ijeoma Azodo ’00 translates clinical processes and care practices into intuitive digital products and services as Clinical Service Design lead on Scotland’s NES Digital Service (NDS). She applies her healthcare knowledge and digital engagement science to help create services that better connect people and careers across all places of care.

She joins NDS from Zinc.vc (London, UK), exiting as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence on Mission 3 ‘to add 5 high quality years to later life.’ Previously, she was the Director of Experiential Learning for the NHS Digital Academy, where she directed the Leadership and Transformation Change program, training the UK’s future digital health care leaders. Her research program focuses on IoT and healthcare innovation and diffuse with technology.

Ijeoma completed her surgical training at Mayo Clinic and holds Masters Degrees in Surgery and Public Health from the University of Edinburgh, where she also leads the online Surgical Sciences MSc program. Dr. Azodo practices as a General Surgeon at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.


Guillaume Delepine ’15
Enterprise Strategy Manager, Skydio 

Guillaume Delepine ’15 graduated from the Woodrow Wilson School with a Certificate in Applications of Computing. He started his career in KPMG’s Silicon Valley Office, advising Fortune 50 technology clients on go-to-market strategy, operational effectiveness and M&A. He then completed the first of the three years of the Harvard MPP/MBA Joint Degree program, where he worked on AIfly, a startup concept using drones to intervene in active shooter situations. Instead of pursuing the concept further, he joined Skydio as a summer intern, and ended up taking extended leave from grad school to stay beyond the summer. Now, he serves as Enterprise Strategy Manager at Skydio, helping bring autonomous drones to a range of socially impactful use cases.
