Research Interests:

  • Advanced application of mechanistic and anatomic based models for developing an integrated understanding of the structure-function relations in the lung with emphasis on asthma and COPD
  • Image-based Computational models of integrated lung function for personalized medicine
  • Development of novel measurement, monitoring and signal processing techniques that provide new insights on the structural airway and tissue conditions of the healthy and diseased lung.
  • Advancing new paradigms and technologies for mechanical ventilation base on fundamental biological principals so as to improve diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
  • Advancing linear and nonlinear sensitivity and systems identification science to evaluate the efficacy of applying models to physiological data with emphasis on structural lung models
