  • Mauro Lago Docampo

    Mauro Lago Docampo

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have always been fascinated by the process of genetic penetrance, how two people can carry the same mutation but only one of them may be affected.

    My main project focuses on understanding the role of TBX4 in the development of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). Mutations in this gene are related to very different diseases. In my research, I mix cellular models, gene editing, and high throughput assays to find the determinants of penetrance in the development of PAH under these conditions.

  • 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.

  • Alireza Raissadati

    Alireza Raissadati

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Cardiology
    Fellow in Pediatrics - Cardiology

    BioAlireza Raissadati, MD, PhD is a fellow in pediatric cardiology at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford. He obtained his medical degree, PhD in medicine, and PhD in biotechnology from University of Helsinki. His research focused on population-based long-term outcomes of patients following congenital heart surgery and the role of vascular growth factors and gene vectors as management strategies for heart transplant rejection.

    Dr. Raissadati completed his pediatric residency training at Boston Children's Hospital/Harvard Medical School and Boston Medical Center in Boston, MA. His clinical interest lies in treating pediatric patients with heart failure and following heart transplantation. His research is focused on understanding the intricacies of heart transplant rejection to find new therapeutic targets for acute rejection and coronary artery vasculopathy of the heart transplant.

  • Matteo Salvador

    Matteo Salvador

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology

    BioMatteo Salvador is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation Lab led by Professor Alison Marsden.
    His main research topics are related to cardiac modeling, model-order reduction and uncertainty quantification.

    Matteo Salvador received his Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Engineering and his Master of Science in Computational Science and Engineering from Politecnico di Milano.
    He completed his PhD in Mathematical Models and Methods for Engineering at Politecnico di Milano under the supervision of Professor Alfio Quarteroni. He worked in the framework of the iHEART project, whose aim is to create a fully integrated human heart for the accurate and efficient numerical simulation of the cardiac function. Specifically, he developed comprehensive mathematical models blended with novel numerical methods and Scientific Machine Learning for cardiac electromechanics.

  • Zachary Aaron Sexton

    Zachary Aaron Sexton

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology

    BioFocused on understanding cardiovascular physiology, disease, and tissue engineering through stem cell biology and hemodynamics. Specializes in 3D extrusion bioprinting and computational fluid dynamics (though an open-source software platform SimVascular) to improve tissue engineering strategies for the successful development of cardiac tissues for disease modeling and therapeutic solutions.
