Research Interest

Computational biology at the interface with molecular imaging. We have developed state-of-the-art image quantification and processing algorithms for quantification of PET images with applications to metabolism and cellular proliferation, among others. We use computational biology to facilitate the understanding of molecular imaging and therapeutic targets in health and disease.
