  • Marina Magalhães

    Marina Magalhães

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neonatal and Developmental Medicine

    BioMarina N. Carvalho Magalhães is a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Suzan Carmichael’s lab in the Division of Neonatal and Developmental Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine. Her overall research goals are to improve health outcomes and advance maternal and infant health equity. Dr. Magalhães is a nurse by training in newborn critical care with a background using clinical research methods, particularly to support nutrition and optimize health outcomes of preterm, very low birthweight (VLBW) infants. Her doctoral research found that personalizing lactation support via biomarker-based text messages during early postpartum is feasible and may prolong lactation among mothers of critically ill infants. This experience, along with the growing maternal health crisis and research silos separating maternal and newborn health, led her to pursue postdoctoral training in perinatal epidemiology. Her current research centers on the health of women and childbearing people by using population-level data to investigate the causes of adverse perinatal health outcomes (i.e. severe maternal morbidity).

  • Devin Malloy McCauley

    Devin Malloy McCauley

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Adolescent Medicine

    BioDevin McCauley earned his PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from The Pennsylvania State University in 2021, where his research applied intensive longitudinal methods and time-varying effect modeling to investigate family, school, and peer influences on adolescent mental health and well-being. A second focus of his research applies a developmental framework in study of adolescent e-cigarette use. He is particularly interested in identifying sociodemographic (e.g., race/ethnicity, sexual identity) disparities in risk factors for e-cigarette use. His long-term goal is to inform, develop, and evaluate family and school-based prevention programs which support healthy adolescent development and address health disparities related to e-cigarette use.

  • Karthik Menon

    Karthik Menon

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology

    BioKarthik Menon is a postdoctoral scholar in the Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation Laboratory at Stanford University, advised by Alison Marsden. His current research involves the development of computational methods for accurate patient-specific cardio­vascular blood flow simulations and uncertainty quantification. He graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2021, where his doctoral work focused on the flow physics of fluid-structure interactions. His broad research interests include fluid mechanics, computational modeling and data-driven methods.
