  • Luca Rosalia

    Luca Rosalia

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioLuca Rosalia received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Glasgow (UK). During his studies, he visited the National University of Singapore and the University of Cambridge, where he gained his first exposure to the fields of soft robotics and tissue biomechanics. He pursued doctoral studies in the Health Sciences and Technology (HST) Ph.D. program of Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the lab of Ellen Roche and he's currently at Stanford University as a Postdoctoral Scholar in Bioengineering in the Skylar-Scott lab.

    His doctoral work primarily focused on high-fidelity and patient-specific soft robotic preclinical models of valvular heart disease, congenital defects, and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. Luca leveraged these platforms for the testing and development of medical devices through several partnerships with industry. During his studies, he also worked as an R&D engineer in the Structural Heart division of Abbott Laboratories on the development of transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR). He also gained clinical experience at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Boston and at Boston Children's Hospital. In the Skylar-Scott lab, Luca will be working on whole-heart bioprinting.

  • Mohit Singhala

    Mohit Singhala

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioMohit is the Global Maternal Health Fellow at Impact1, Stanford Biodesign. He is working to identify and address the top unmet needs in maternal health in India, splitting his time between Uttar Pradesh and California.

    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. He concurrently served as an innovator-in-residence at Johns Hopkins CBID, where he previously earned his MSE in bioengineering innovation and design. He comes from India, where he completed his undergraduate training in mechanical engineering.

    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. 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

    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.

  • Tom Van Wouwe

    Tom Van Wouwe

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioI received a B.S. degree in Engineering Science, Mechanical Engineering (2013, KU Leuven, Belgium) and a M.Sc. in Engineering Science, Biomedical Technology (2015, KU Leuven, Belgium). I worked for a year as an engineer in the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson (Beerse, Belgium). After, I returned to academia for a PhD on computational methods to simulate neuromechanical models of human movement. In January 2018 I received a four-year FWO-SB fellowship on the topic of my dissertation. During my PhD I collaborated with the Computer Science research group of the Georgia Institute of Technology and with the Department of Biomechanical Engineering of the University of Twente resulting in academic publications. I supervised ten master students in Rehabilitation & Movement Sciences for their master’s thesis projects and taught the practical sessions in the second year biomechanics course for undergraduate students in Rehabilitation & Movement Sciences.

  • Rahel Woldeyes

    Rahel Woldeyes

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioThe goal of my current research is to use high resolution imaging techniques to interrogate outstanding questions in cardiovascular cell biology, with a focus on the signaling pathways that trigger heart muscle contraction. In the Wah Chiu lab, I am using cryo-electron tomography-based imaging approaches to connect the molecular and cellular scales of biology and accelerate our understanding of human health and disease.

    B.Sc. in Chemistry, Tsinghua University (2017)

  • Claudia Zielke

    Claudia Zielke

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioAfter a BS and MS in Chemistry from the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, I used my expertise in physical and analytical Chemistry to received a PhD from the Department of Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition at Lund's University in Sweden. I specialized within the Field-Flow Fractionation family, a very versatile and gentle separation technique able to separate large size ranges, from nanometer up to several micrometer. My thesis was titled "On the Aggregation of Cereal β-Glucan and its Association with other Biomolecules: A Study using Asymmetric Flow Field-Flow Fractionation (AF4)". After a postdoctoral position at Santa Clara University, CA, USA, I am now setting up an Asymmetric Flow Field-Flow Fractionation system with several detectors in the Barron Lab, BioE, here at Stanford.
