Research Interests:

Mathematical modeling of phenomena in the biomedical sciences is one of the fastest growing areas in Applied Mathematics. I am interested in developing such models which have proved immensely useful in the study of many biomedical systems. Specifically, I am interested in the application of mathematics to medicine, cancer, cellular dynamics, and physiology. My mathematical interests are mainly asymptotic and perturbartion methods for nonlinear systems of partial differential equations. For a more detailed description, see my research statement.
