    Javier Ajenjo Barcenas

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    BioJavier received his MSci from the University Complutense in Madrid (Spain). He then moved to Prague (Czech Republic) where he earned his PhD degree in Chemistry from Univerzita Karlova under the supervision of Dr Petr Beier at IOCB, working on the synthesis and derivatization of hypervalent sulfur fluorides. During this period, he also took part as ESR of FLUOR21 initial training network led by Prof Graham Sandford (Durham University) and collaborated with F2 Chemicals Ltd. Later, he joined the University of Oxford (UK) as a postdoctoral research fellow to work on the synthesis and biological evaluation of F18-labeled ATM inhibitors under the supervision of Prof Bart Cornelissen. In 2021, he joined Ferrara lab as a postdoctoral scholar to work on the development of radiochemistry methods and the synthesis of therapeutics for medical imaging.

  • Ali Anil Demircali

    Ali Anil Demircali

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    BioAli Anil Demircali received B.Sc, M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechatronics Engineering at Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2015, 2017, and 2021, respectively. Then he pursued his career in optical hollow-core fiber development at the Hamlyn Center for Robotic Surgery in Imperial College London, United Kingdom between 2021 and 2022. He is currently doing a second Post. Doc. in the Department of Radiology, Molecular Imaging Programme (MIPS) at Stanford University, USA. Currently, he is working on magnetically levitated cancer cell separation and sorting with high throughput, and its application on wearable devices. His main areas of research interest are not limited to but include Micro-Nano Robotics and Fluidics, Mechanical Design and Optimization, Magnetic Levitation, and Sensory Systems.

  • Kaiwen Hsiao

    Kaiwen Hsiao

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    BioKaiwen Hsiao a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford in the DeSimone lab. Her postdoctoral research focuses on developing high-resolution 3D CLIP printers and developing stereolithography computational models. Her research interests involve in fabricating micro-architectures for bio-oriented applications and microelectronic applications. Before she join Stanford, she worked on computational lithography as a design engineer at Intel and at Apple camera hardware. She did her PhD at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in Schroeder lab where she focused on understanding the intermolecular interactions of concentrated polymer solutions and ring polymers.
