Behzad Ebrahimi, PhD

I am investigating the feasibility of extracting kinetic information from statistical characteristics, including spatial distribution patterns of pathological biomarkers. The long-term goal of my research is to develop methods to characterize dynamic microenvironments, with particular emphasis on cancer, through identifying phenotypes, and investigating their cross-talks, interactions, and potential emergence behaviors. Projects are available for students interested in developing spatiotemporal models for dynamic biological systems
