Research Interests

As a Mathematical Biologist, I am interested in research problems that are at the interface between Mathematics and Biology. The main objective of my research is to use analytical and numerical techniques to help understand biological problems of clinical importance. By using Mathematics to study such problems, new insight can be gained that might not be easily attained using biological techniques alone. I have a broad range of projects I am currently working on, including the development and simulation of differential equation models that describe human body weight change, liver metabolism, and intracellular dynamics. In addition to understanding normal intracellular behavior, much of my work involves applications to cancer treatment - so I am also interested in how cellular dynamics are altered by the addition of various cancer drugs.
