Electromagnetics applications in medicine with a focus on clinical translation.
Our current research focuses on developing microwave ablation devices and techniques, building numerical tissue models for multiphysics simulation, optimizing devices with computational assistance, and improving imaging feedback for minimally invasive therapies. We work with the UW-Madison interventional oncology program to promote clinical impact.
Our group comprises researchers from many disciplines. We welcome individuals of any race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identification, age, or ability.
