Current Projects
My current research mainly lie in the interface between mathematics and biology, and computational fluid dynamics. My research in computational and mathematical biology is focused on the numerical simulation and mathematical modeling of cell signaling pathways, which pay vital roles in the development of life threatening or chronic diseases, such cancer, autoimmunity and diabetes. My research in computational fluid dynamics is focused on the numerical simulations of fluid instability and turbulent fluid flow. My current work is also supported by NSF and South Carolina EPSCoR GEAR grants.
