Research Summary

My research area of focus is the multimodal investigation of lung nodules, incorporating computed tomography, nuclear imaging, and histopathology. I have worked on developing and implementing methods for cross linking three-dimensional histopathology to non-destructive imaging methods. Current areas of focus include, dynamic perfusion computed tomography for nodule characterization and for early response to treatment monitoring, lobar co-localization between lung disease and cancer, and animal models for lung cancer evaluation and drug development.
