My research investigates minimally invasive screening methods for early detection of cancer. As a postdoctoral researcher, I design experiments and develop mathematical models to relate the cancer blood-based biomarkers to tumor growth states. My research also touches on targeted cancer therapy using microRNA for cancer. Prior to my affiliation with Stanford, I was a graduate student at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) and my research contributions mainly focused on the biodistribution of cancer drugs, drug-target biomolecules, and targeted imaging agents in living subjects. I am interested in quantitative molecular imaging and kinetic modeling of imaging agents.
