    Jennifer Maier

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Mechanical Engineering

    BioMy research interests include a broad variety of topics, ranging from medical image analysis and signal processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, which I mainly focused on during my Ph.D. research. As a member of the Digital Athlete project of the Wu Tsai Performance Allience, I am now pursuing research to investigate how we can use wearable sensors, machine learning and biomechanical simulations to improve athlete performance, prevent injuries and support rehabilitation after injury.

    I completed my Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in medical engineering from Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuernberg (FAU). In 2015, I worked on my master’s thesis under the supervision of Prof. Kamiar Aminian during a research stay in the Laboratory of Movement Analysis and Measurement (LMAM), École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), supported by a DAAD Scholarship. Afterwards, I pursued my Ph.D. at FAU in the Pattern Recognition Laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Andreas Maier and in the Machine Learning and Data Analytics Lab under the supervision of Prof. Bjoern Eskofier. I worked on projects in collaboration with Stanford University and the Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos (UNISINOS) and conducted several short-term research stays at the partner universities. After finishing my Ph.D. in 2021, I joined Stanford University as a postdoctoral scholar advised by Prof. Ellen Kuhl.

  • Mohamadali Malakoutian

    Mohamadali Malakoutian

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Electrical Engineering

    BioMohamadali is an experienced Postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University with a demonstrated history of working in high-power high-frequency transistors, all-diamond diodes, and diamond integration for thermal management, III-V wide bandgap semiconductors, integrated microsystems including MEMS/NEMS devices, and microfluidic channels. He is an expert in fab process design-integration, process and device modeling (Athena, Atlas), thin-film deposition techniques (Evaporation, Sputtering, PVD, ALD, and PECVD), dry etching (ICP/RIE etching of Diamond, AlN, SiN, Al2O3, SiO2), wet etching (bulk Si micromachining), and single-crystalline/polycrystalline diamond growth. He is currently working on the growth, fabrication, and characteristics of GaN HEMTs with diamond integrated for thermal management to solve the self-heating problem of mm-wave devices.

  • Dakota McCoy

    Dakota McCoy

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Materials Science and Engineering
    Casual - Non-Exempt, Recreation Instructional & Fitness

    BioDakota "Cody" McCoy is a Stanford Science Fellow (also supported by the NSF PRFB) who recently completed her PhD in Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University. Previously, she attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar to study environmental policy. Combining applied physics with biological methods, she studies the functions and origins of optical adaptations in nature. For example, her work on “super black” birds and spiders has driven novel solar technology research, inspired recent studies of light manipulation in several animals, and will soon appear in a forthcoming United Nations booklet on bioinspiration. She also researches the unusual health risks of pregnancy for humans. Cody hails from Pittsburgh, greatest city in the USA, where she grew up with four siblings and four dogs.
