Research Summary: My research interests have focused on systems that enable multidisciplinary data integration, management and analysis. Some of my recent work has included middleware systems for federating distributed sources of medical imaging data, radiation therapy data, and data derived from their human/automated analysis. I am interested in quantitative imaging that integrates neuroimaging data and radiation therapy data for early outcome prediction and more quantitative response assessment. I am also interested in developing novel techniques for multi-dimensional flow cytometry and it's application in the area of renal transplantation. I have been closely involved in the caBIG® program both as a participant of the caBIG® In Vivo Imaging Software and a co-developer of the In Vivo Imaging Middleware (IVIM). In collaboration with Tony Pan, I developed the VirtualPACS system, which provides Grid access to PACS platforms on top of the IVIM. Recently I have been leading the development of middleware systems for on-demand cloud-driven research data management systems.
