My lab's research focuses on computational techniques and modeling for the use of radiation in cancer care, with a strong emphasis on theranostics and radiopharmaceutical therapies (RPT). We cover aspects ranging from the fundamental effects of different types of radiation in biological systems to patient-specific dosimetry to optimize the delivery of radiation-based cancer treatments. Our work is at the intersection of computational mathematics, radiation physics, imaging physics, and radiation biology.
