Maria Jose Medrano Matamoros
Maria Jose Medrano Matamoros is a postdoctoral scholar in the Wang Group in the department of Radiology at Stanford School of Medicine. Her research focuses on the development of novel image reconstruction and deep-learning techniques to optimize CT image quality and patient dose delivery. She completed her PhD in electrical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis where she was a recipient of the Imaging Science Pathway Graduate Student Fellowship through the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences. Maria Jose’s thesis focused on assessing and implementing x-ray CT model-based image reconstruction techniques and spectral material decomposition methods in proton radiotherapy. Outside of her research, Dr. Medrano passionately promotes the participation of underrepresented minorities in engineering and medical physics. She is an active member of AAPM’s Working Group on Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee on Outreach and Social Media (WGEDIO) and AAPM’s Hispanic and LatinX Medical Physics Subcommittee (HLMPSC). In her free time, Maria Jose enjoys Olympic Weightlifting, long-distance running, hiking, rock climbing, and CrossFit.
