About Our Lab

We specialize in the mathematical modeling of pathological biosystems – specifically, primary brain tumors known as gliomas. We are currently within the Northwestern University Brain Tumor Institute working on several collaborative projects utilizing both clinical and experimental imaging techniques such as MRI and PET.
