Graduate Students

Annie Yang, BS

Organic chemistry graduate student (1st year)
L1.206, 214-648-9391
Email



Annie obtained her B.S. in Chemistry at the University of Texas at Dallas where she worked under Dr. Mihaela C. Stefan studying a neodymium catalyst system that promotes a quasi-living polymerization of dienes and homopolymerization of polar vinyl monomers.

She is currently working on the development of nanoparticles to improve the efficacy and safety of amino acid depletion therapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Hobbies include: cooking and trying new cuisines, hiking, reading sci-fi novels


Peiyuan Huang, BS

Biomedical Engineering graduate student (1st year)
L1.206, 214-648-9391
Email



I am from China and obtained my B.Sc from Nanjing University with an undergraduate thesis of potassium ionophores-based ion-selective electrodes design. Before I came to UT Southwestern, I worked as a research assistant in Dr. Eric Bakker's group at the University of Geneva, Switzerland.

I am currently working on developing a point-of-care device for hydrogen peroxide detection with ultrasound imaging.

In my spare time, I enjoy running (6 times Half-Marathon Finisher!), movies and Cantonese songs.


Carlos Brambila, BS

Biomedical Engineering graduate student (1st year)
L1.206, 214-648-9391
Email



Carlos graduated from San Diego State University where he received his B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in Bioengineering. At San Diego State, he worked in Dr. Paul Paolini’s Cardiomyocyte dynamics laboratory studying the contractile protein gene expression of electrically paced neonatal rat cardiomyoctyes. He also worked at Inovio Pharmaceuticals, a biotech company in Southern California that focuses on developing immunotherapies as a Bioengineer research associate.

He is currently working on the optimization of nanoscale contrast agents to facilitate detection of acute deep vein thrombosis through ultrasound imaging.

His hobbies include playing soccer, guitar, and relaxing with family and friends.
