  • John M. Abendroth

    John M. Abendroth

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Materials Science and Engineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsJohn's research interests include the theoretical design and experimental implementation of dielectric metasurface platforms to interact with light for enhancing electromagnetic near fields that possess enhanced chiral character greater than circularly polarized light for molecular detection, advanced spectroscopies, and spin- and valleytronic integration.

  • Raag Airan MD, PhD

    Raag Airan MD, PhD

    Assistant Professor of Radiology (Neuroradiology) at the Stanford University Medical Center and, by courtesy, of Materials Science and Engineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur goal is to develop and clinically implement new technologies for high-precision and noninvasive intervention upon the nervous system. Every few millimeters of the brain is functionally distinct, and different parts of the brain may have counteracting responses to therapy. To better match our therapies to neuroscience, we develop techniques that allow intervention upon only the right part of the nervous system at the right time, using technologies like focused ultrasound and nanotechnology.

  • Eric A. Appel

    Eric A. Appel

    Assistant Professor of Material Science and Engineering and, by courtesy, of Bioengineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe underlying theme of the Appel Lab at Stanford University integrates concepts and approaches from supramolecular chemistry, natural/synthetic materials, and biology. We aim to develop supramolecular biomaterials that exploit a diverse design toolbox and take advantage of the beautiful synergism between physical properties, aesthetics, and low energy consumption typical of natural systems. Our vision is to use these materials to solve fundamental biological questions and to engineer advanced healthcare solutions.

  • Eneko Axpe Iza

    Eneko Axpe Iza

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Materials Science and Engineering

    BioEneko Axpe's work is at the interface of materials science, nanomedicine and physics. A major focus is the design, fabrication and characterization of hydrogels and nanocomposites for tissue engineering and drug delivery, as well as the study of mathematical models to predict their behavior. At NASA, Eneko is also developing biomaterials to treat the spaceflight-induced bone loss in astronauts.

    Eneko obtained his PhD in Materials Science 2015 at the University of the Basque Country – UPV/EHU, pursuing part of his doctoral research at the University of Oxford (Department of Physics). In 2016, Eneko became a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge (Department of Engineering). He also worked as Supervisor of Mechanics at Clare College, University of Cambridge. Two years later, Eneko moved to California to work in an interdisciplinary joint research project between the Appel Lab at Stanford Engineering and NASA (AMES Research Center).
