    Instructor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    BioI am interested in using machine learning and computational approaches to analyze longitudinal and multi-modal MRI to characterize how the white-matter architecture develops to support coordinated neural activity for developing higher-order executive functions. My research also extends to characterize the impact of alcohol and substance use on structure-function remodeling. My general interest lies in image analysis and machine learning for the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases.

    Renee Zhao

    Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering

    BioRuike Renee Zhao is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University where she directs the Soft Intelligent Materials Laboratory. Renee received her BS degree from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2012, and her MS and PhD degrees from Brown University in 2014 and 2016, respectively. She was a postdoc associate at MIT during 2016-2018 prior to her appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University from 2018 to 2021.
    Renee’s research concerns the development of stimuli-responsive soft composites for multifunctional robotic systems with integrated shape-changing, assembling, sensing, and navigation. By combining mechanics, polymer engineering, and advanced material manufacturing techniques, the functional soft composites enable applications in soft robotics, miniaturized biomedical devices, flexible electronics, deployable and morphing structures.
    Renee is a recipient of the 2022 ASME Henry Hess Early Career Publication Award, 2022 ASME Pi Tau Sigma Gold Medal, 2021 ASME Applied Mechanics Division Journal of Applied Mechanics Award, 2020 NSF Career Award, and 2018 ASME Applied Mechanics Division Haythornthwaite Research Initiation Award.

  • Han Zhu

    Han Zhu

    Instructor, Medicine

    BioDr. Zhu is a general cardiologist with specialized clinical and research training in cardio-oncology and cardio-immunology. She focuses on the cardiovascular care of patients undergoing therapies for cancer, with a particular focus on the effects of immunotherapies on the heart. She completed clinical cardiology fellowship and internal medicine residency training at Stanford University School of Medicine. During her post-doctoral training, Dr. Zhu’s research focuses on myocarditis, cardiac inflammation, and the effects of cancer therapeutics on the cardiovascular system. Her current research employs clinical data, bio-banked samples, and animal models to study T-cell toxicities in the heart. Dr. Zhu's clinic sees cardio-oncology and cardio-immunology patients and focuses on devising new methods for minimizing cardiovascular complications in the cancer patient population.
