Last night on #TheEGG , I put out a post on how to use ideas that you'd learn in a classical mechanics course for understanding the replicator dynamics of cancer. This is one of a long series of posts on a project with +Robert Vander Velde, +Jacob Scott, and +David Basanta.
Last month, I classified the possible dynamic regimes of our model of acidity and vasculature as linear goods in cancer. In one of those dynamic regimes, there is an internal fixed point and I clai…

The end of one road, and the beginning of another.
One month ago I sat for my oral boards for final certification by the American Board of Radiology . This exam represents the final hurdle in what is (normally) a decade long road after college. It should be 4 years of medical school, then 5 years of residen...

Congratulations and wishing you great inspiration in the years ahead. As an old applied mathematician and survivor of prostate and colon cancer I am rooting for you in your quest to apply the best math to cure cancer for my kids and grandkids. Cheers!

Story
Tagline
A radiation oncologist interested in theoretical modeling of cancer.
Introduction
I approach the understanding of cancer like my original training in physics taught me - from the ground up, using the descriptive language of mathematics.  Using established mathematics in new ways, guided by the principles of evolution, I hope to better understand (and maybe treat!) cancer.  I am a proud member of the Integrated Mathematical Oncology group at the Moffitt Cancer Center and the Centre for Mathematical Biology at Oxford University.

Love this place! If you need after school care that goes the extra mile, then this is the best in South Tampa. They pick up from the school by bus, give them a snack, get their HW done, and they're open until 6. Teachers, not just babysitters, and they also do private tutoring if you need.
