The goal of my lab's research is to develop clinically-translatable, immune-based therapies for neurological and infectious diseases. We build computational models of biological processes that span the atomistic to cellular scales, leveraging approaches from statistical learning and data science. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, focused at the crossroads of physics, engineering and immunology, and we work in close synergy with experimentalists and clinicians.

CHEN 3210 - Chemical Engineering Heat Transfer
Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
Examines conservation and transfer of mass and thermal energy. Focuses on conduction and convection of heat in the context of chemical processes and heat exchangers. Addresses radiation. Also studies mass transfer rate processes, including diffusion, microscopic material balances, and correlations for mass transfer coefficients.
