I am a Professor of Mathematics and the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. I have a joint position at the Department of Mathematics and at the Center for Scientific Computation and Mathematical Modeling (CSCAMM). I am also a member of the Maryland BioPhysics Graduate Program and of the Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computation Graduate Program (AMSC). Previously, I held positions at Stanford University, UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the University of Paris 6, and at the Ecole Normale Superieure (ENS), Paris. In 2013 I was named a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher by the University of Maryland. In 2014 I was named a Fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
I am an applied mathematician. My research focuses on biomedical applications of mathematics. I am particularly interested in cancer dynamics, drug resistance, immunology, imaging, and cell motility. These studies are being carried out in collaboration with researchers from Medical Schools, Medical research centers, and biology departments.
Over the years, I have been involved in math education, including K-12 education, curriculum development, undergraduate education, and mentoring and advising Ph.D. students and PostDoctoral fellows.
This site includes a lot of information about my research and educational activities. I invite you to contact me if you are looking for advice, if you have any questions, or if you simply want to discuss science.
