Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Genetics
Bio A research individual with more than ten years of extensive research experience in molecular biology techniques ranging from DNA/RNA manipulations, recombinant protein expression, purification, and biochemical characterization of DNA-cutting enzymes, needed for genetic engineering. I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Genetics, Stanford University. I work with Dr. Mike Snyder. My research involves multiplexed-molecular imaging for the precancerous and cancerous colon polyps (Familial adenomatous polyposis) using a cutting-edge technology, Codex. My previous work involved novel gene therapy approaches to cure muscle disorders, particularly Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2A using mouse models, and gene repair studies using modified CRISPR system through plasmid/protein-oligo based transfections, electroporation in human cells, microinjection in frog embryos and analyzing editing efficiencies using flow cytometry. I have a multi-disciplinary background, therefore I have a solid understanding and working knowledge in a broader domain within the biological sciences, be it from animal behavior, ecology, gene regulation, genetic diseases to understanding and designing ?molecular switches? within DNA-cutting proteins, such as meganucleases, and CRISPR/Cas9 for genome engineering. I have strong communication skills, presented my research in various conferences and published heavily in the field of DNA-cutting enzymes and their use as genome editing tools. I have a proven ability to manage challenging research objectives, collaborated with other research teams, and delivered results effectively. I always welcome new ideas and interact with people to learn any new skills and experiences. I have also supervised several undergraduate project students, summer students and junior graduate students. My mentorship to the lab colleagues have been very productive. While I am not working, I enjoy photography.

Bio Dr. Vanessa Gulla, MD is a board certified Urologist specializing in adult general urology of both men and women. She enjoys managing both the medical and surgical treatment of diverse urologic conditions.
After completing a residency at Dartmouth, Dr. Gulla participated in a endourology fellowship with the NHS in Bristol, England. She then returned to her native Northern California to practice.
Saad Ahmad Gulzar
Assistant Professor of Political Science
Bio I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Stanford University. My research asks under what conditions can representative government ? one that provides equality of voice and influence ? improve people?s lives?
Focusing on South Asia, I pose two broad sets of questions:
1. Does representative government improve redistribution at the cost of policy efficiency? My work shows that broadening political representation can redistribute welfare towards marginalized communities without incurring efficiency costs. I argue that taking electoral incentives seriously holds the key to making politics work for development.
2. How can societies transition towards more representative government? I examine long-term historical processes of transitions and their policy consequences. I also study how barriers that prevent broader political participation can be overcome both at the individual and organizational levels. My work shows that politics can be made more inclusive and that doing so can better align policy outcomes with the preferences of people.
I work closely with politicians, political parties, bureaucrats, and government agencies in Pakistan, India, and Nepal, and strive to make these collaborations meaningful for research and policy. My work has been published in the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, the Journal of Development Economics, and the Journal of the European Economic Association.
I received my Ph.D. in Political Science at New York University in 2017, where my work received the Best Dissertation Award from the American Political Science Association?s Experiments Section.
