    Magdalini Paschali

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on utilizing machine learning models to enhance the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of clinical disorders. I am interested in multi-modal learning, combining imaging data like MRI and CT scans with non-imaging data such as electronic health records, creating more holistic and accurate diagnostic models. I am also interested in the robustness of deep neural networks under domain shifts, investigating how models perform when faced with changes in input data distributions.
    Finally, I am interested in early biomarker identification using AI model interpretability, to enable the early detection and targeted treatment of chronic disorders.

  • Suraj Pavagada

    Suraj Pavagada

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioSuraj Pavagada is a postdoctoral scholar at the Department of Radiology at Stanford University. His research focuses on exploiting magnetic levitation-based techniques for applications in point-of-care medical diagnostics.

    Suraj received his PhD in Oncology from the University of Cambridge (24’), where he developed a new bioelectronic cell enrichment platform utilizing altered glycosylation patterns for the early detection of esophageal cancer. With a background in electrochemistry, surface functionalization, liquid biopsy, and molecular diagnostics, he is passionate about developing portable sensor technologies that can be translated into the clinic to facilitate timely diagnosis and monitoring.

  • Shirin Pourashraf

    Shirin Pourashraf

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy working is focused on building a 100 ps CTR pre-clinical partial ring TOF-PET scanner; specifically, by exploring, and designing high speed low noise/jitter instrumentation, and data acquisition.
    I am also designing an scalable side-readout electronic to detect Cherenkov radiation and improve TOF resolution in PET detectors using BGO crystals.
