  • Paul Schmiedmayer

    Paul Schmiedmayer

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsPaul Schmiedmayer's research applies computer science research to medicine, enabling digital health innovations. These include machine learning applications and deployments, heterogeneous connected devices, health data standards such as FHIR, and software engineering best practices.
    He leads the development of the Stanford Spezi framework and ecosystem, enabling the rapid development of digital health innovations. He is a co-instructor of the Building for Digital Health (CS342) course.

  • Mohit Singhala

    Mohit Singhala

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioMohit is the Global Innovation Fellow at Impact1, Stanford Biodesign. He comes from India, where he completed his undergraduate training in mechanical engineering.

    Mohit leads research at Stanford and Johns Hopkins that leverages robotics principles to understand and address complex systems-level healthcare needs of underserved populations. He is currently developing Maitri, a system that aims to bring the promise of digital health & AI to prenatal screening of mothers seeking care at community health centers of India- combining implementation science and design thinking.

    He completed his PhD at Johns Hopkins, where he studied haptics and medical robotics. He built custom electromechanical testbeds to quantitatively assess how humans perceive touch. His work on haptic perception is being used to develop novel therapies for children on the spectrum for Autism and for quantitative measurement of pain in patients suffering from peripheral neuropathy.

    He concurrently served as an innovator-in-residence at Johns Hopkins CBID, where he previously earned his MSE in bioengineering innovation and design. He has invented several patented and patent-pending medical devices, performed primary ethnography in multiple countries, and received funding from organizations such as the Gates Foundation. He continues his global health collaborations in India, Uganda and Zambia, where has invented several medical technologies including a mosquito trap, currently being tested in East Africa to accelerate malaria research through large scale capture of different mosquito species.

    Mohit also played a crucial role in Hopkins’ COVID-19 pandemic response, most notably helping devise an emergency dialysate production method that was adopted by multiple healthcare facilities.

    Sandya Subramanian

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI would like to focus on platform technology development for at-home monitoring of chronic disease, by studying gut-autonomic nervous system interactions. I am trained as an engineer and computational researcher, and I have experience developing computational algorithms from physiology, collecting data from patients in complex clinical scenarios, and collaborating with diverse clinical and regulatory teams. I am developing expertise in hardware-software interfacing and bioelectronics.
