Research in Wallenberg Hall


The Wallenberg family's great generosity has allowed us to create a space to work with Stanford faculty and collaborators all over the world. Along the way the faculty, staff and students here have learned a few things, and while a number of our findings have been presented at academic conferences, they've not been readily available, collected in one place for easy review.

To that end, we're kicking off a new feature of the Wallenberg Hall website: a weekly posting. We'll be featuring some formal findings, informal stories or anecdotes, or "postcards" from Wallenberg Hall, usually by members of the staff and faculty here, sometimes from our collaborators. Think of them as dispatches from the edge of learning we're currently dangling our feet over; we hope you'll find these posts interesting.

Furthermore, we hope that you'll talk back to us! We would love to hear from you, and hope that we'll be able to feature some of your stories here as well. We expect to get an RSS feed up in the very near future, which we hope will make it easier for you to keep track of what's happening in Wallenberg Hall.
