The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.

Research Interests

  My research interests include fluid dynamics and turbulence, medical image processing and analysis, and mathematics in health care.
  Turbulence is observed everywhere: pouring milk into a cup of coffee, transporting oil and gas through pipelines, in the rising smoke of a chimney, in a boiling kettle, in the sudden drop of an airplane, and even in the blood flow through parts of the human heart. These interesting phenomena inspired me to study fluid dynamics and turbulence in my doctoral work, in order to capture the characteristics of turbulent flows, and understand the nature of the transition to turbulence.
  My current work focuses on medical image processing and applications of mathematics in health care. I have worked on attenuation compensation in ultrasound images, trans-abdominal ultrasound imaging in prostate cancer treatment planning, 3D recursive Bayesian vascular segmentation, ultrasound modulated optical tomography assessment of osteoporosis, heel effect adaptive flat field correction in digital radiography, Enclosure Transform for interest point detection with applications in screening breast ultrasound and prostate radiotherapy, cancer classification using deep learning, etc.
  My goal is to develop effective models and methods, that help access clinically-meaningful information embedded in complex data, in order to increase the accuracy of medical diagnoses, and enhance early cancer detection and intervention.
