Probe Magazine is dedicated to exploring and promoting the intersections of biology with art and technology. As Stanford Students in Biodesign, we write on topics such as breakthroughs, trends, current events, and debates in biosciences and medical technology, and we feature pioneers in these evolving fields.
Meet the Team
Ariana is a Stanford junior majoring in biomechanical engineering. She hopes to contribute one day to the creation of impactful and innovative medical technology. She enjoys playing tennis, teaching children about algae, drawing cartoons, and reading science fiction novels.
As a sophomore, Kendall is intrigued by the relationship between the human mind and artificial intelligence. She wishes to share her interest in neuroscience and bio-design through working on Probe magazine with her fellow teammates. In her spare time, Kendall is usually found reading, tap-dancing, dabbling in VR, or cheering at football and basketball games.
Kate is a freshman interested in the intersection between neuroscience and computer science. Her prior research has focused on addiction and fetal brain development and she is excited to explore more emerging neuroscientific discoveries with Probe. When she isn’t reading articles on PubMed, she can be found debating, decorating for whatever holiday is next, teaching kids about science, and thinking up creative ways to avoid going to the gym.
Victoria is a coterm in Biomedical Informatics. She is interested in computational genomics, data driven medicine, and medical imaging. In her free time, she loves reading and writing fiction, playing the violin, and baking.
Fan Liu is a sophomore interested in biology and medical research. She sees Probe magazine as a platform to explore her interest in dissecting the implications of cutting-edge biodesign innovations. Fan loves teaching, visiting art museums and bookstores, traveling, and collecting postcards.
Mel is intrigued by the question: what does it mean to be human? She seeks to find the answers to this question through cognitive science, philosophy, artificial intelligence, art, and the social sciences. Probe is another fantastic, interdisciplinary outlet for exploring this question, especially with its upcoming issue on the relationship between the mind and body. Mel enjoys brie and baguette, Anderson Paak’s groove, art museums, and having metacognitive conversations with quality people.
