Research interest: My general areas of expertise are optimal control, optimization, mathematical biology, and applied analysis. Student Advising & Teaching: Under my current NSF grant I am working on optimal control problems for mathematical models of various cancer treatments and I am welcoming students to join me on this interdisciplinary research in biomathematics. I could also provide other topics for applications of optimal control in science and engineering. Optimal control, although a branch of mathematics, has various engineering applications which makes for employment opportunities in industry.
