Biography
My goal is to cure cancer with cost effective approaches that maintain a high quality of life. I develop novel devices and treatment planning systems for cancer treatments. Focusing on experimental, pre-clinical and clinical validation, this work resulted in novel applicators and pioneering data for improving magnetic nanoparticle hyperthermia.
Research Interests

Thermal Management

Medical device development

Multi-physics modeling

Magnetic nanoparticle hyperthermia for oncology applications

Thermal oncology

Artificial Organs

Biotransport
