November 2017 : Tracy Shi New ICCM Postdoc
The Department of Mathematics welcomes PostDoc, Tracy Shi. Tracy works in the Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine with Professor Majid Jaberi-Douraki. More specifically, Dr. Shi's research interests focus on modeling complex systems using mathematical and/or computational modeling. "My previous research projects include mathematical and agent-based modeling for simulating cellular interactions during sepsis progression," Tracy says. "The modeling approach is a powerful tool for identifying risk factors for complex systems, and eventually help decision-making for these systems," she adds. Dr. Shi's current research projects aim at understanding the complex mechanism of type 1 diabetes using an agent-based modeling approach.
