  • Alexander Wilson

    Alexander Wilson

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    BioDr Wilson completed a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science (University of Auckland, New Zealand, 2007), and a Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Sciences (UoA, 2008).

    He then changed his focus to engineering and applied mathematics, and completed a Masters of Operations Research (UoA, Faculty of Engineering, 2011). In his Master's thesis, he developed a mixed-integer linear formulation for determining optimal electricity distribution tariffs under a range of power generation conditions.

    Dr Wilson then switched back his focused to the Medical Sciences and completed a PhD in Bioengineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Physiology and the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. His Doctoral thesis (2018) focused on the physiology and biomechanics of cardiac remodeling underpinning heart failure.

    During his first Postdoctoral position (University of South Florida Heart Institute, 2018-2019), Dr Wilson developed nanoparticle therapies for myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury, as well as anti-thrombin nanoparticles to reduce thrombus formation while limiting bleeding risk.

    Dr Wilson is currently a member of the Cardiac MRI Research Group at Stanford University (PI: Professor Daniel Ennis), and works on a range of projects including (i) using tissue clearing techniques to understand the fundamental branching structure of the myocardium (ii) developing new diffusion tensor MRI reconstruction techniques for extracting cardiac microstructure and pathology (iii) using MRI and histology to understand the myocardial structural and functional improvements brought about by ACE inhibitor treatment.

  • Zijian Yang

    Zijian Yang

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioI have long term interest in combining advanced science and technology to provide next generation healthcare system.

    To reach that goal, I have developed machine learning based diagnosis model on the software end, which is combined with my hardware end work including wearable/flexible electronics and microelectronic/microfludic platforms.

  • Alaa Talaat Youssef

    Alaa Talaat Youssef

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioDr.Youssef is a postdoctoral fellow at the Stanford Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Imaging (AIMI), in the Department of Radiology. She received her Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Population Health and Medical Education from the Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto in 2021, Canada. Her research interests lies at the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) implementation and clinical evaluation. She works with multi-disciplinary research teams to assess, design, develop, and implement person-centered AI solutions that address a clinical need. Her research addresses the ethical, organizational, and workflow barriers that impede clinical adoption of AI in healthcare. Dr. Youssef co-leads the development of several AI educational programs that centers on building capacity for AI research by training diverse group of learners to facilitate safe and responsible use of AI in healthcare for public good.

  • Moss Zhao

    Moss Zhao

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioDr. Moss Zhao is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford’s Center for Advanced Functional Neuroimaging led by Drs. Greg Zaharchuk and Michael Moseley. He develops cutting-edge and clinically viable imaging technologies to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cerebrovascular diseases across the lifespan. His specific areas of expertise include physiological modeling, arterial spin labeling, Bayesian inference, PET/MRI, and artificial intelligence. His scientific contributions could significantly improve the early detection of strokes and dementia as well as enrich the knowledge of brain development in the first two decades of life.

    Dr. Zhao received his DPhil at St Cross College of University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Michael Chappell. As an alumni mentor, he supports the career development of students of his alma mater. Since 2016, he has presented his work to more than 3000 delegates at international conferences and held leadership positions in professional societies. His research and teaching are supported by the American Heart Association, the National Institutes of Health, and the European Cooperation in Science and Technology.
