  • 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.

  • Celeste Melamed

    Celeste Melamed

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Materials Science and Engineering

    BioCeleste Melamed is a postdoctoral scholar with the Chueh group at Stanford. Her interests include ionics, structural chemistry and transport, and materials by design, with the overarching goal of a sustainable energy economy. She is currently developing thin film synthetic methods to investigate interfacial structure and evolution in solid-state battery materials. She received her PhD in Materials Science at Colorado School of Mines and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in 2021, where she investigated the interplay between local and long-range structure in new ternary nitrides for optoelectronic applications. She received a B.S. in Physics from Harvey Mudd College in 2015.

  • L. Julian Mele

    L. Julian Mele

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Materials Science and Engineering

    BioJulian graduated in electrical engineering and received his PhD from the University of Udine (Italy). During his PhD, he worked on electrochemical modeling of performance and noise for electronic biosensors and bioactuators. Then he continued as a postdoctoral scholar in Prof. Palestri’s group, where he focused on modeling and simulations of conjugated polymers for bioelectronic applications. He joined Prof. Salleo's group in the fall of 2022 where he is contributing to the understanding of the physical operation of organic devices.

  • Jordan Moore

    Jordan Moore

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Materials Science and Engineering

    BioJordan Moore is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, appointed in both the Departments of Materials Science & Engineering and Neurology. He earned his Ph.D. from The Ohio State University within the Department of Biomedical Engineering, where he was mentored by Dr. Daniel Gallego Perez. During his doctoral studies, Jordan's research primarily centered around the application of electroporation for gene delivery in vivo, with a specific focus on cell-reprogramming.
    His work in his Ph.D. program aimed to address the restoration of blood flow to damaged peripheral nerves, contributing to the promotion of nerve regeneration and functional recovery. As a postdoctoral researcher, Jordan is currently co-mentored by Professor Sarah Heilshorn and Dr. Marion Buckwalter. In this role, he is dedicated to the development of innovative biomaterial-based platforms for gene and drug delivery. His research focuses on the treatment of stroke-related injuries and the prevention of cognitive decline.
