My research program covers a wide spectrum of research topics ranging from traditional medical physics to nanotechnology. Also, it is built upon both experimental and computational approaches to maximize the synergy between them. Currently, my research focuses on the following topics and students may work on one of these topics during their tutorials:

  • Quantification of gold nanoparticle-mediated radiation dose enhancement using experimental and computational techniques

  • Modeling of gold nanoparticle-mediated radiation response modulation using cellular-/nanoscale Monte Carlo simulations

  • Development of a benchtop x-ray fluorescence computed tomography (XFCT) device for multi-modal molecular imaging

  • Development of x-ray fluorescence imaging techniques with gold nanoparticles and other metal probes

  • Quantification of plasmonic heat generation due to gold nanoparticles and near-infrared light using experimental and computational techniques
