Meet the Siebel Scholars

Lindsay StradleyMIT, Sloan, Class of 2011

Lindsay Stradley Solves a Sanitation Crisis with a Waste-to-Energy Business

In developing countries, lack of sewage infrastructure contaminates waterways and food supplies and creates diseases that kill 1.6 million children each year. Siebel Scholar Lindsay Stradley wanted to solve this problem and in 2011 she launched Sanergy, a company that provides sanitation services, and which also solves multiple social problems.



Jingjin YuUniversity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Class of 2008

Algorithms Developed by Siebel Scholar Jingjin Yu Help Robots Navigate Factory Floors Safely

In the next two years the population of industrial robots will double to nearly 3 million globally. These busy machines make factory floors more efficient, but more robots means a higher likelihood of collisions and traffic jams. Siebel Scholar Jingjin Yu is working to solve that problem by developing algorithms that enable swarms of robots to work better together.



Haroldo SilvaUC Berkeley, Bioengineering, Class of 2011

Siebel Scholar Haroldo Silva is Working Toward a Universal Cancer Therapy

Aging is a fact of life, and for many people, about 39,000 every day globally, a cancer diagnosis will come with advanced age. Unfortunately, that will also mean a death sentence for many patients as more than 22,000 people die of cancer daily around the globe.  But Siebel Scholar Haroldo Silva (UC Berkeley, BioE ‘11) is working to change that.



Rachel MillerMIT, Bioengineering, Class of 2010

Siebel Scholar Rachel Miller is Taking an Interdisciplinary Approach to Understanding Knee Pain

An assistant professor in the departments of internal medicine and biochemistry at Rush University Medical Center, Siebel Scholar Rachel Miller studies the knee, a complex joint that is prone to developing arthritis. Miller's work focuses on explaining the origins of osteoarthritis pain associated with mechanics.



Howard BornsteinStanford, GSB, Class of 2009

Siebel Scholar Howard Bornstein’s Vision Care Startup is Setting a New Standard for Corporate Wellness

Launched in 2014 by Bornstein (Stanford GSB ’09), 2020 On-site Optometry works with companies and schools to deliver vision care on-site. They are currently operating in Boston and Atlanta, and will expand into Chicago in the fall of 2016. With 2020 On-site Optometry, a 34-foot truck brings a top quality mobile vision clinic directly to schools and offices.
