Research Statement

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI). My research interests are in differential equations, delayed differential equations, and bifurcation theory.

I have been working on many interesting mathematical biological problems, such as somitogenesis, modeling in cancer immunoediting, and evolution in ecology.


Research Interests

Modeling in Cancer Immunoediting
            The controversial role of CD200-CD200R in tumor microenvironment
            The functions of Interleukins in tumor microenvironment
            How anti-PD-L1 or anti-PD-1 drug improve cancer treatment efficacy

            What mechanism induces synchronous oscillation, traveling wave pattern, and oscillation-arrested gene expression
            What is the main function of the Notch signaling pathway and how does it promote synchrony
            How coupling strength and coupling delays affect the dynamics in somitogenesis
            Whether decoupling cells can destroy oscillation
            The different dynamics between coupled cells and decoupled cells
            Which of the mathematical model types is most suitable to generate these major dynamics in somitogenesis

Evolution in Ecology
            How time delay affects the species migration

SnapBack Repeller
            How to modify Marotto's Theorem
            Construct numerical method to detect the existence of snapback repeller
