Dahl Lab Alumni

Valerie Perez (2016-2017) - Valerie started as a BioE REU summer intern, developing and refining methods of phantom construction (for B-mode and small-vessel/flow imaging to test contrast-enhanced ultrasound techniques). She continued research with members of the Dahl, Willmann, and Gambhir labs throughout her senior year, working on microbubble formulations for use as contrast agents and for targeted drug delivery.  Valerie is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Molecular Biophysics at UT-Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

Nathan Staffa (2016) - Nathan worked on the Intravascular ARFI project as a BioE REU summer intern, improving Field-simulation and finite-element models.  Nathan continued this work through the end of 2016, and is currently finishing his co-terminal Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Electrical Engineering at Stanford.

Gustavo Chau (2016) - Gustavo worked on the Minimum Variance Beamformer project as a visiting student from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP).  Gustavo is currently finishing his Master's degree in Digital Signal and Image Processing at PUCP.

Matt Morgan (2014-2017) - Matt started working on the Low-cost 3D ultrasound project (sensor integration, 3D image reconstruction methods, etc.) as an undergraduate researcher in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University (Durham, NC), came to work at Stanford for the summer after finishing his bachelor's, and continues to support and develop the project.  Matt is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Duke in the Gregg Trahey ultrasound lab.

Niral Sheth (2013-2014) - Niral worked on full-wave simulations related to coherence imaging as an undergraduate Pratt Fellow in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University, Durham, NC.  Niral is currently working as a Postbaccalaureate Research Fellow at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD.
