My research aims to bridge the different areas dealing with bubbles in the bloodstream, from environmentally triggered endogenous bubbles to engineered contrast agents for ultrasound imaging & therapy. Recent contributions focus on 1) Studying the circulatory bubble dynamics which can lead to decompression sickness; 2) Investigating how the tissue microenvironment acting on microbubbles affects ultrasound cardiovascular imaging and cancer treatment, in particular, how oxygen-loaded bubbles can modulate tumor hypoxia and improve radiotherapy.
