Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our goal is to develop and clinically implement new technologies for high-precision and noninvasive intervention upon the nervous system. Every few millimeters of the brain is functionally distinct, and different parts of the brain may have counteracting responses to therapy. To better match our therapies to neuroscience, we develop techniques that allow intervention upon only the right part of the nervous system at the right time, using technologies like focused ultrasound and nanotechnology.
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cancer is a heterogeneous disease. I am passionate about using computational systems biology and medicine to study heterogeneity in normal and disease progression as well as improve patient health by developing better diagnostic and treatment strategies using high throughput technologies.
