Overview
I am an Industrial Engineer and Operations Researcher by education and Cancer Researcher and Optimization expert by profession. My areas of interest is applications of optimization techniques, including convex, robust, dynamic, and stochastic optimization, in healthcare systems, especially in the world of Oncology. I heavily and routinely use state-of-the-art image analysis and data analytics techniques to extract valuable information from complex medical data (e.g. imaging, genetic, and bio-physiological) and use them in advanced data-driven optimization techniques. In particular, I am very interested in Personalized Medicine -- the personalization of standard treatment protocols based on patients' genetic and epigenetic characteristics. My overall goal is to integrate knowledge from mathematics, biology, and oncology to arrive at a fully data-informed personalized treatment plans.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
