    bio:

    Jorge Cham is the writer and artist of Piled Higher and Deeper, a comic strip about life, or the lack thereof, in academia. Often called "the Dilbert of Academia," the PHD Comics website receives over 8 million visitors a year. Additionally, it has appeared in The Stanford Daily, MIT, Carnegie Mellon University and Caltech newspapers and it has appeared or been featured in the journal Nature, Science Magazine, the Chronicle of Higher Education, IEEE Potentials magazine among others. It has also been linked to by USA Today's, The NY Times and The Washington Post's websites.

    Jorge was a Research Associate at Caltech from 2003-2005 and obtained a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, specializing in Robotics. His research at Stanford focused on dynamic legged "biomimetic" robots that incorporate novel manufacturing technologies and design lessons from biology. The resulting prototypes are among the fastest recorded running robots ever created (for their size), and achieve robust locomotion with no sensory feedback.
