Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis:
As an assistant professor, my research interests lie primarily in mathematical biology. I am currently developing a mathematical model to assess the significance of changes in vascular segments subsequent to a major arterial occlusion based upon data obtained from the mouse hindlimb (Collaborators: Joseph Unthank (IUSM), George Akingba (IUSM), Matt DiStasi, (IUSM); Students: Malorie Kennedy and Stephanie Willoughby). I am also
using a mathematical model to predict the relative importance of regulatory mechanisms in achieving retinal autoregulation (Collaborators: Giovanna Guidoboni (IUPUI), Alon Harris (IUSM), Brent Siesky (IUSM)).
I have begun to develop a mathematical model of the immune-mediated rejection of pancreatic islet transplants (Collaborator: Giorgio Raimondi (University of Pittsburgh); Student: Andrew Maturo (IUPUI)).
Finally, I am designing an enzyme kinetics model to predict the time course and reaction products of a catalyzed reduction of Chalcone (Collaborators: Tyler Nguyen (IUSM) and Ryan Denton (IUPUI).
University of Pittsburgh:
In my postdoctoral work, I was a member of the Complex Biological Systems Group in Pitt's Department
of Mathematics and developed
theoretical models to investigate an inflammatory disease of the gut called necrotizing
enterocolitis (NEC), which affects premature infants. NEC is thought to be related to an
immature intestinal wall, an exaggerated inflammatory response, and impaired cell migration.
I have studied the contributions of these factors to NEC using two models: a compartmental ODE
model that predicts conditions under which probiotic bacterial treatment may promote health
(joint work with Bard Ermentrout, Jonathan Rubin, Yoram Vodovotz, and David Hackam's lab) and a
two-dimensional continuum mechanical model of collective cell migration (joint work with David Swigon and Qi Mi).
University of Arizona:
In my doctoral work, I developed a mechanistic model of
blood flow regulation in microvascular networks of skeletal muscle. In addition to modeling
vascular responses to pressure and shear stress, I modeled a conducted response mechanism
in which ATP released by red blood cells at a site of oxygen demand causes an electrical
signal to travel upstream along the vessel wall and trigger arteriolar vasodilation so
that more blood is sent to the region of demand. Our representative segment ODE model was
based on the active and passive length-tension characteristics of vascular smooth muscle and
was used to calculate the steady state vessel diameter and smooth muscle tone as oxygen
consumption was increased from a resting to maximal exercise state. The model predicted an
increase in flow that was consistent with experimental observations. I also examined the model's predictions of limit cycle
oscillations in vessel diameter as a potential mechanism for vasomotion. (Ph.D. Advisor: Dr. Timothy
University of Michigan: As an undergraduate, I worked on an REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates)
with Dr. Trachette Jackson in the area of mathematical modeling of cancer. We developed
a five-dimensional system of ODEs to examine the growth, immune escape, and siRNA treatment of tumors.
