Research Interests

My research involves the development of a methodology to reconstruct noisy “wide-area” micro-computed tomography imaging data, and evaluate blood perfusion and oxygenation in the whole tumor and regions of interest. Moreover I conduct simulations of 3D diffusion of small molecular species which are important for tumor angiogenesis and growth.
