Graduate School of Business professor and former Microsoft chief economist Susan Athey, PhD ’95, has joined the Department of Justice as its top antitrust economist, though due to her previous work, she’ll likely be recused from upcoming high-profile Google and Apple cases.

Speaking of high-profile gigs, Stanford history professor Priya Satia, ’95, served as a consultant for Marvel’s Ms. Marvel TV series, the first of the franchise’s productions to center on a Muslim superhero. Satia specializes in British and British empire history, especially in South Asia and the Middle East.

In other marvel-ous TV news, anthropologist and Emmy award–winning filmmaker Paul Espinosa, MA ’76, PhD ’82, produced Singing Our Way to Freedom, which will air on public television stations this fall in time for National Hispanic Heritage Month.

By that time, Stanford professor of bioengineering and of applied physics Stephen Quake, ’91, MS ’91, will have settled into his new role as head of science at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. He’s been co-president of CZI’s Chan Zuckerberg Biohub since the health research endeavor began in 2016.
