    Alex Abramson

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Chemical Engineering

    BioMy passion is to create medical devices that make a difference in quality of life for patients worldwide. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford in Prof. Zhenan Bao's lab developing flexible electronic devices for physiologic status monitoring. I received my Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from MIT working under Profs. Robert Langer and Giovanni Traverso, where my research focused on developing ingestible robotic capsules for oral biologic drug delivery. I am passionate about mentorship as well as entrepreneurship, and I volunteer locally to support STEM innovation in my community. Check out my website in the links section for more information in my research.

  • Eran Agmon

    Eran Agmon

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioEran Agmon is a postdoc in the Department of Bioengineering, where he is part of the Covert lab’s team developing a whole-cell computational model of Escherichia coli. His research interests include multi-scale modeling frameworks for cell biology, models of lipid membranes and transmembrane transport, the spatial organization of cells, and bacterial chemotaxis.

  • Chris Anderson

    Chris Anderson

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Electrical Engineering

    BioI am currently a postdoctoral scholar at the Nanoscale and Quantum Photonics Lab led by Jelena Vučković at Stanford University. I recently finished my PhD in Physics in the research group of David Awschalom at the University of Chicago in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering. Generally, I'm interested in developing the physics and devices that will enable the next generation of quantum communications and internet technologies. Specifically, I work on creating photonic, mechanical and electrical devices combined with single optically active spin qubits in semiconductors that can be used in scalable quantum repeaters and long-distance entanglement distribution. I am a former NDSEG fellow, and my previous research ranges from cellular biology and physical chemistry to attosecond pulsed lasers. My other passions include mentorship, and increasing diversity, equity and inclusion in quantum science.

  • Rika Antonova

    Rika Antonova

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Computer Science

    BioI am a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford IPRL lab and a recipient of a CI Fellowship from NSF/CRA for research on active learning of transferable priors, kernels, and latent representations for robotics. My research interests include reinforcement learning and Bayesian optimization. I completed my PhD work on data-efficient simulation-to-reality transfer at the Robotics, Perception and Learning lab in KTH, Stockholm. Previously, I was a Masters student at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, developing Bayesian optimization approaches for learning control parameters for bipedal locomotion (with Akshara Rai and Chris Atkeson). During my time at CMU my MS advisor was Emma Brunskill and in her group I worked on developing reinforcement learning algorithms for education. Prior to that, I was a software engineer at Google, first in the Search Personalization group and then in the Character Recognition team (developing open-source OCR engine Tesseract).
