Pallavi Doradla, PhD
Research Fellow
My current research at Wellman is focused on the design and development of an intracoronary console, combining polarization sensitive OFDI (PS-OFDI) with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), to acquire the sub-surface coronary microscopy simultaneously with plaque microstructure and burden information. This project includes the validation of dual PSOFDI-IVUS catheter technology with clinical studies.
     
 
Zeinab Hajjarian, PhD
Instructor
My current research involves measuring mechanical properties of phantom and tissue samples and extracting visco-elastic modulus using Laser Speckle Micro-rheology. I am planning to extend my work to diagnosis of cardiovascular disease via characterizing various atherosclerosis plaques.

Asael Papour, PhD
Research Fellow
I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering from UCLA in 2015, under the mentorship of Oscar Stafsudd and Warren Grundfest. I have developed two biomedical imaging systems; fluorescence lifetime and Raman imaging, for the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) failed wound initiative. In Nadkarni's group, I joined the blood coagulation team to develop a point-of-care device that can detect blood coagulation deficiencies and provide platelet function tests using laser speckle sensing and imaging in real time.
