Areas of expertise

  • General: Use of mathematical modeling to study cardio-renal axis, machine learning for data interpretation, visualization of high dimensional data sets for pattern recognition
  • Specific: Systems integration of hormones, vasculature and tubular effects to maintain water and electrolyte homeostasis, topology-based analytic methods, support vector machine and ridge regression methods for surrogate model construction, nearest neighbor regression and Markov chain methods for model calibration/parameter inversion, in silico clinical trials of pharmaceutical or device interventions targeting the cardio-renal axis, Boolean and multilevel network analysis

Research methods

The computational modeling lab uses an integrative model of human physiology, HumMod, as its prime research tool, as well as a suite of ancillary software to calibrate, validate, extend, and analyze the model.  Our commonly used methodologies include:

  • Topological data analysis
  • Visualization of high dimensional data
  • Pattern recognition algorithms
  • Surrogate modeling techniques
  • Parameter inversion methods including nearest neighbor regression and Bayesian melding
