It is an exciting time to work in the interdisciplinary field of Mathematical Oncology. Even TIME magazine agrees that, “A team-based, cross disciplinary approach to cancer research is upending tradition and delivering results faster.”
Mathematical and computational modeling approaches have been applied to every aspect of tumor growth from mutation acquisition and tumorigenesis to metastasis and treatment response. My research focuses on developing mathematical approaches that are able to address critical questions associated with vascular tumor progression and targeted therapeutics.
