Centre for Mathematical Medicine at the Fields Institute
My research interest is currently focused on the application of experimental and theoretical methods, as well as nanotechnology, to biological and medical systems. My research activities include the study of efficient combination of chemotherapy and molecular targeted therapeutics to overcome drug resistance in cancer patients, nano-scale drug delivery systems, and quantum nano-sensors for biological applications.
