I am a physicist by training currently working as researcher on biostatistics, data science and machine learning.
My main projects are in the development of prediction models for head and neck cancer.
In the past I developed mathematical models to describe biological systems,
such as: the growth of new blood vessels,
and collective phenomena.
In this figure we show the evolution (from left to right) of the vascular morphology (top row)
and of the corresponding VEGF concentration (bottom row) produced by randomly distributed hypoxic cells for a network growing.
The value of the VEGF concentration at the hypoxic cells is maintained at Ts (in light green)
and reaches zero (in blue) inside the irrigated regions.
