Sharath Bhagavatula

Sharath Bhagavatula, MD

Interventional Radiologist

Sharath Bhagavatula completed his BS at Cornell University in Electrical/Computer Engineering, MD at NYU, and is currently at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for radiology residency and interventional radiology fellowship. His research interests focus on developing and translating novel tools for minimally invasive cancer diagnosis and treatment. Outside of work, he enjoys playing tennis, jogging outside, and watching tv.

Zuzana Tatarova

Zuzana Tatarova, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Zuzana completed her doctoral research in the Cancer Stem Cell lab of Dr. Joerg Huelsken at École Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne. The project was performed in collaboration with Dr. Maerkl lab from the School of Engineering. Her thesis work involved development of microfluidic devices for functional characterization of rare primary stem cells. The platform allowed for the first time to perform chemotaxis measurements for primary stem cells and is dedicated for high-throughput functional screens. She joined the laboratories of Dr. Joe Gray (OHSU) and Dr. Oliver Jonas (MIT) in April 2017.

Guigen Liu

Guigen Liu, PhD

Post-doctoral Fellow

Dr. Liu received the B.E. degree from the Qingdao University, and the Ph.D. degree from the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, both in mechanical engineering. Upon graduation, he was appointed as an assistant professor with CIOMP. In April 2014, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Nebraska–Lincoln, as a postdoctoral research associate in Prof. Ming Han’s group. In January 2018, he moved with the same group to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Michigan State University. Since the Ph.D. stage, he has been working on fiber optic sensors and instrumentation, and so far has published extensively on this topic. Upon joining the Jonas Lab as a research fellow in January 2020, his work is focused on developing an optical imaging system in combination with fiber-optic probes for an innovative biomedical microdevice.

Dylan Blumberg

Research Assistant

Dylan obtained a BS in Biological Sciences from Chapman University in 2018. He worked at OHSU in Dr. Joe Gray’s lab through 2021 until coming to the Jonas Lab in 2022. With the Jonas Lab, he focuses on cyclic immunofluorescence, in vivo models, and clinical studies. When away from the lab, he enjoys socializing with friends, watching/playing sports, trying new restaurants, and exploring the city.

Natalie Azzolini

Natalie Azzolini

Research Assistant

Natalie obtained a BS in Biochemistry from Boston College. During college, she performed research in a biomechanics lab studying the biomechanical basis of swimming in fish species. She is focusing on gaining valuable research experience at the Jonas Lab while she applies to veterinary school. During her free time Natalie enjoys traveling, running, horseback riding, and spending time with friends and family.

Sebastian Ahn

Research Assistant

Seb obtained a dual BA in physics and biochemistry & molecular biology from Boston University in 2016. With the Jonas Lab, he focuses on computational histopathology using machine learning and the development of tools and algorithms for high-throughput biomedical image processing. When away from the lab, he enjoys producing electronic music and tries to learn new languages.
