Ahmed Zaki Alsinan

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (joint appointment with UCIL)

My research interests include image processing, computer vision, deep learning, and machine learning, with a particular focus on the development of deep learning-based solutions to medical image synthesis, segmentation, classification, and reconstruction. Prior to joining Stanford, I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Michigan State University and my Ph.D. degree from Rutgers University all in electrical engineering.

Indrani Bhattacharya, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (joint appointment with UCIL)

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.

Negar Golestani, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

My research interests are wearable sensors, medical image analysis, signal processing, machine learning, and deep learning. I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering with a focus in digital signal and image processing from the Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran, in 2014. I joined Microwave Systems, Sensors and Imaging Lab (MiXIL) in the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California, where I worked under the mentorship of Prof. Mahta Moghaddam. I received my M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering, M.Sc. degree in Computer Science, and the Ph.D. degree in 2017, 2019, and 2021, respectively, from the University of Southern California

Wei Shao, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

My research focuses on image registration and medical imaging.

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.
