  • Soujanya Gade

    Soujanya Gade

    Clinical Research Assistant, Psych/Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences

    Bio Soujanya has a M.S. in Child Development from San Diego State University and a B.S. in Psychology from University of Washington Seattle. Her master’s thesis study is on cognitive development and adaptive outcomes in children with Autism. Soujanya’s experience working with children and adolescents ranges from administering neurodevelopmental assessments to implementing interventions in both research and clinical settings. She joined the Early Childhood School Age Brain Development Study team in July 2014.

  • Ning Liu

    Ning Liu

    Basic Life Science Research Associate, Psych/Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences

    Bio Dr. Liu has over 10 years educational and research experience in Biomedical imaging and is the author of over 20 peer-reviewed scientific publications and conference papers. Her Ph.D. and early postdoctoral trainings were focused on the development of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and its application to breast cancer detection, including both human and small animal models. Dr. Liu’s current research focus on the following projects: development of neurofeedback-based intervention paradigms to enhance cognitive functions of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD); investigation of neuroimaging as a biomarker for children with ASD anf PTSD; development of functional NIRS as a stand alone technique and in combination with functional MRI for cognitive studies; development of hyperscan technique to study neural mechanisms for social cognition.

  • Manish Saggar

    Manish Saggar

    Social Science Research Associate, Psych/Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences

    Bio Manish Saggar is a Research Associate in Psychiatry department at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He is working with Dr. Allan Reiss in the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research (CIBSR). His research focuses on the intersections of cognitive science, neuroimaging, and computational modeling. The goal of his research is to develop novel experimental designs and computational analyses to better understand typical and atypical brain functioning. He is currently working on several projects including (a) finding the neural correlates of creativity and its enhancement across lifespan; (b) developing multi-person neuroimaging paradigms to assess the neural correlates of social interaction; and (c) constructing methods to characterize and model dynamics of brain’s intrinsic activity. Manish is also part of Stanford’s d.school teaching team, where he is actively involved in teaching design thinking principles and their relation to mental health.

    Manish received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin. As part of his doctoral work, he developed a computational model of brain processes underlying meditation training. He holds a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelors degree in Information Technology from the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad (India).
