Indrani Bhattacharya, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

My research interests include applying computer vision, machine learning, and multimodal data analytics to predict disease extent and sub-type using  a fusion of radiology and pathology images.

Wei Shao, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

My research focuses on image registration and medical imaging.

Rewa Sood

PhD Candidate

My research focuses on creating and using fused radiology and pathology volumes for cancer detection and segmentation.



Stefania Moroianu

PhD Candidate

I come from Romania, and I did my undergraduate studies in the UK at the University of Cambridge. There I received my bachelor's degree in Natural Sciences along with the Master of Science in Physics. I'm now a Ph.D. candidate in the Applied Physics Department at Stanford. I joined the PIMed lab in autumn 2019, where I work on deep learning methods to improve early breast cancer detection on MRI. In my free time, I like to exercise, read, play tennis, travel, dance.

Arun Seetharaman

M.S. Student

I am a current Electrical Engineering M.S. student who is primarily interested in applying machine learning techniques to medical imaging problems. For the past few months I have been working with Dr. Mirabela Rusu and the PiMed lab to use of machine learning to segment cancer in MRI scans of the prostate using a fusion of radiology and pathology information.

Simon John Christoph Soerensen

Visiting Research Student

I am a last year medical student joining the Pimed Lab from Aarhus University, Denmark. My clinical areas of interest include cancer imaging, urologic oncologic outcomes research, prostate cancer, robotic urologic surgeries, and applied deep learning in healthcare. I am currently working on developing novel deep learning methods for segmenting the prostate before MRI-TRUS fusion biopsies as well as diagnosing prostate cancer on MRI based on zonal prostate anatomy.
