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. My research has been funded continuously by NSF/NIH and other funding agencies, including 3 NIH R01 grants, and one NSF/NIGMS grant ($1.8M). I am serving as an Academic Editor for PLOS ONE and as an associated editor for BioMedical Engineering OnLine. I also served on various scientific review panels for NSF, NIH, AHA and some international funding agencies.
