I have been teaching and conducting research at WPI since 1988. Teaching is a lot of fun since it involves interactions with students, and we can pass our knowledge and experiences to students for their better future. I have been conducting research for cardiovascular modeling in the past 30 years and has made various contributions, especially in using image-based modeling for vulnerable plaque progression and rupture investigations. I collaborate with faculty from many universities, including Harvard, MIT, University of Washington (Seattle), Washington University (St. Louis), Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Shinshu University, Beijing Normal University, and others. I am serving as Editor-in-Chief for Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics (MCB), an Academic Editor for PLOS ONE and an editorial board member for BioMedical Engineering OnLine.
