  • Viktoryia Shautsova

    Viktoryia Shautsova

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Materials Science and Engineering

    BioViktoryia is a Stanford Science Fellow with a background in physics, nanotechnology, and material science. Viktoryia received her bachelor’s degree in computer science from Belarus State University and a PhD in physics from Imperial College London, followed by a postdoc in material science at Oxford University. Viktoryia's passion lies in building the next generation of bioelectronic devices that interface with the brain and heart. At Stanford, Viktoryia is part of GLAM and Wu Tsai Neuroscience Institute, working with Nick Melosh, Bianxiao Cui and Mark Brongersma to develop novel nanoscale devices for label-free optical sensing of bioelectrical signals produced by neural and cardiac cells and nongenetic optical stimulation of neural activity.

  • Patrick Sheehan

    Patrick Sheehan

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Management Science and Engineering

    BioPatrick Sheehan a Post-Doctoral scholar in the Work, Technology, and Organizations group at MS&E. He is an ethnographer and economic sociologist who studies work, culture, and technological innovation. His research focuses on elite professional employment as an entryway for understanding cultural transformations to contemporary capitalism. Ongoing projects investigate the puzzling rise of “career coaches” as self-styled “experts” in career management, and an ethnographic study of “hype culture" in Silicon Valley start-ups.

    His work has been published in American Journal of Sociology, Annual Review of Sociology, and Work & Occupations, and has received best-paper awards from the American Sociological Associuation sections on Cultural Sociology; Organizations, Occupations, and Work; and Economic Sociology.

    Patrick earned a BA from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin.

  • Nicholas Siemons

    Nicholas Siemons

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Materials Science and Engineering

    BioNicholas began his academic career by studying integrated Masters at University College, London. During this time he published his first article, "Multiple exciton generation in nanostructures for advanced photovoltaic cells" - a review of how to produce photovoltaics with greater than 100% internal efficiencies. Following this Nicholas began research into solar voltaics and organic batteries in the group of Prof. Jenny Nelson at Imperial College, London. During this time Nicholas developed his keen interest in how to relate the chemical design of polymers to their ability to function as battery electrode materials. To achieve this goal, Nicholas applies atomistic simulation methods to such polymer systems, and relates the simulated findings to experimental results, bridging the gap between chemistry and device properties. As well as linking molecular chemical design to device performance, Nicholas applies novel simulation and analysis methodologies to study these systems, including Molecular Dynamics, Density Functional Theory, Molecular Metadynamics and Network Analysis.

  • 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.
