Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Zack is involved with ongoing research related to the treatment of adolescent and adult trauma (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - TF-CBT; Prolonged Exposure - PE), and the effective provision of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to adolescent girls and women with disorder of emotion regulation. She additionally studies Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for adolescent girls with anxiety. More broadly she is interested in the impact of Evidenced Based Treatments on improving quality of life, and helping individuals find the right match for clinical care. Research is conducted through the Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Disorders Program at Stanford Children's Hospital and the Stanford Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests The most common problem with people's heartbeat is when it becomes irregular, which
is called atrial fibrillation (AF). AF is a problem as it can lead to strokes and heart
attacks. It is difficult to cure, with many tablets required that aren't that
effective. A new way of picking where to ablate has focussed on rotors - areas where the electricity spins around like a hurricane. At Stanford, I am working with the developer of this technique to improve understanding of how and why they occur.

Postdoctoral Research fellow, Radiation Physics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My academic and scientific training has been focused on design and development of novel fiber-optic based biomedical instrumentation to improve the detection and, intervention, and treatment of various diseases. Currently, I am on a Western State Affiliate Winter 2013 Postdoctoral Fellowship from the American Heart Association (AHA) at the Stanford University School of Medicine in the laboratory of Professors Lei Xing and Michael V. McConnell, where I developed a novel fiber-optic catheter based optical imaging system to detect vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque in carotid arteries. In this work, I developed a novel scintillating balloon which can detect the vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque from stable plaque with high sensitivity after 18F-FDG uptake by the macrophages within the thin cap fibro atheroma (TCFA). The TCFA causes 60-70% of acute coronary syndrome that leads to sudden cardiac death and myocardial infarction.
