Research Interests: 

My methodological research focuses on statistical modeling and classification in a spatially and temporally correlated data for pattern recognition or therapeutic response in medical imaging.  I applied the mathematical de-noise a model on CT images and the statistical classification to develop an automated scoring abnormalities in patterns of interstitial lung disease such as fibrotic reticular pattern, ground glass opacity, and honeycomb. This algorithm has been implemented into a machine learning system and produces quantitative scores. A quantitative lung fibrosis (QLF) score has been used in multiple clinical trials as a tool to measure extent of lung fibrosis.  In cancer studies, my work involves in statistical designing, modeling, and evaluation to identify a prognostic, predictive, or surrogate outcomes for therapeutic responses on CT, MRI, PET, and bone scan images.
