  • Juan Rivas-Davila

    Juan Rivas-Davila

    Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Senior Fellow at the Precourt Institute for Energy

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsModern applications demand power capabilities beyond what is presently achievable. High performance systems need high power density and bandwidth that are difficult to achieve.
    Power density can be improved with better semiconductors and passive componets, and by reducing the energy storage requirements of the system. By dramatically increasing switching frequency it is possible to reduce size of power converters. I'm interested in high performance/frequency circuits switching >10 MHz.

  • Albert "A.J." Rogers, MD, MBA

    Albert "A.J." Rogers, MD, MBA

    Instructor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine

    BioDr. Rogers is a board-certified, fellowship-trained cardiologist with the Cardiac Arrhythmia Service at Stanford Health Care. He is also an instructor of medicine in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine.

    As a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. Rogers’ training includes evaluating issues involving electrical activity in the heart and how these can lead to an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia). His expertise includes mapping regions in the heart associated with arrhythmias and then applying a minimally invasive therapy (ablation) that targets the responsible areas causing the problem. He also performs procedures to implant cardiac devices, such as pacemakers and defibrillators, designed to synchronize heart contractions and reset irregular heartbeats.

    Dr. Rogers specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and other arrhythmias. In collaboration with Stanford Medicine cardiovascular surgeons, he performs hybrid surgical-catheter ablation procedures as a more permanent treatment for persistent forms of atrial fibrillation and for inappropriate sinus tachycardia. During this procedure, ablation therapy is applied to areas both inside and outside of the heart responsible for the arrhythmia.

    As a physician-researcher, Dr. Rogers’ translational research applies biomedical engineering and machine learning approaches to explore the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmia. These efforts include research funded by the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association to investigate novel methods for diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders. Dr. Rogers has over 10 years of experience with medical technology innovation and development.

    Dr. Rogers serves as associate editor of the Journal of Invasive Cardiovascular Electrophysiology. He is also a peer reviewer for multiple prestigious journals, including Heart Rhythm, The Lancet: Digital Health, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Clinical Electrophysiology, and Frontiers in Physiology. He has been an invited guest speaker at national and international meetings, including those for the American Heart Association and the European Cardiac Arrythmia Society.
