Prof. Jean Fan
Assistant ProfessorI am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. I was previously an NCI F99/K00 post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Xiaowei Zhuang at Harvard University. I received my PhD in Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics at Harvard under the mentorship of Dr. Peter Kharchenko at the Department of Biomedical Informatics and in close collaboration with Dr. Catherine Wu at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In my free time, I enjoy writing code to forward STEM education. Once in awhile, I try to make time for photography.

Graduate StudentI am currently a first-year PhD student in the Biomedical Engineering Department at Hopkins. My ultimate goal is to develop user-friendly computational software specifically tailored for biologists who may not be as tech-savvy. My research focus lies in deciphering the intricate connection between spatial gene expression and tissue architecture in 2D, with the goal of broadening these insights into 3D applications. When I'm not busy with research, you'll find me playing/watching sports, hanging out with friends, or watching movies :)
Undergraduate StudentI am a undergraduate student majoring in computer science and chemical & biomolecular engineering at Johns Hopkins. I have had previous lab and research experience in cellular biology, computational chemistry, and deep learning. I am currently interested in using my technical background to anaylyze data and solve biomedical problems. Outside the lab, I enjoy working out, listening to music, cooking, and watching movies/anime.
Undergraduate StudentI am a senior Biomedical Engineering undergraduate student at Johns Hopkins University. Throughout my undergraduate studies, I mainly studied immunoengineering and conducted research on T cell-based cancer immunotherapy. I joined JEFWorks Lab because I was fascinated by the application of bioinformatics and data science to the field of biology, especially spatially resolved omics analysis. I am excited to diversify my skillset as a researcher and solve biomedical problems with computational approaches. In my free time, I like to exercise, read, and play video games.
Graduate StudentI am a PhD student in the biomedical engineering program at Hopkins. I am interested in using math and programming to study biological spatial organization. As an undergraduate at William & Mary, I majored in computational and applied math while pursuing research in biology. For a research project in synthetic biology, I characterized the increase in gene expression that can result from using ribozyme insulators in genetic circuits. Currently, I am involved in supporting STEM education and career development through mentoring the Hopkins iGEM team and serving on the executive board of JHU BME EDGE. Also, I enjoy volleyball and visual arts (infrequently via painting; frequently via television).
Graduate StudentI am currently an MD-PhD candidate pursuing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering. I am interested systems biology and data science and am excited about how computational and mathematical methods can be used to understand complexity in disease. In my free time, I like to read, paint, and go to art and history museums.
Graduate StudentI am a Neuroscience PhD student, coadvised by Dr. Justus Kebschull. I am interested in understanding how the genetic and connectivity patterns of cells in the brain change during development and across species, with a focus on the cerebellar nuclei. In my spare time, I like hiking and exploring Baltimore!
Undergraduate StudentI'm a first-year Biomedical Engineering student at Johns Hopkins University. I have previously worked in this lab to learn how to increase the scalability of spatial omics data analysis and I'm excited to help make this method more accessible to others. Outside of school, I enjoy listening to music, watching documentaries, and making matcha latte for my friends.
Rafael dos Santos Peixoto
Graduate StudentI am a first-year Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. student at Hopkins. I recently graduated in Control and Automation Engineering at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Brazil. There, I developed software for the analysis of scRNA-seq and SRT data, which I aim to continue during my doctoral studies. In my personal time, I try to explore places and try new activities.
Srujan Singh (Sami)
Postdoctoral FellowI am a recent PhD from the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering program at Johns Hopkins University. My expertise lies in the field of bone tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. As a postdoctoral fellow, I want to work at the intersection of advanced imaging and computational biology, and understand how cell-cell/cell-material interactions and spatio-temporal gene regulation play a role in the context of diseases and tissue regeneration. Outside of lab, I like to run, hike, explore new places and cuisines.
