Dahl Lab Alumni

Junhong Lin (2018) - Junhong worked on the Low-cost 3D ultrasound project during the summer of 2018 as a visiting undergraduate research intern from Huazhong University, completing sensor integration and developing a freehand acquisition and volume reconstruction platform. Junhong is currently finishing his undergraduate studies and plans to pursue graduate studies in Engineering.

Alicia Ugenti (2018) - Alicia worked on phantom construction for molecular imaging during the summer of 2018 as a Canary CREST program intern from Amherst College.  Alicia is currently finishing her Bachelor's degree in Biology at Amherst.

Kevin Looby (2016-2018) - As a Master's student and Research Assistant, Kevin worked on 3D acoustic map segmentation and simulation, and also helped develop simulation tools for the intravascular ARFI project. Kevin completed his degree in 2018 and is currently a Research Engineer at Spry Health in Palo Alto.

Taehwa Lee (2016-2017) - After completing his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in 2015, Taehwa was a postdoctoral research fellow in both the Dahl Lab and the Willmann/Translational Molecular Imaging Lab. Taehwa is currently continuing his career in South Korea.

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 (2014-2018) - 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.
