Pujan Shrestha, PhD
Pujan is interested in probability theory, stochastic processes and their application in understanding cancer. He has previously worked on the theory of anticipating stochastic calculus and large deviation principles. He develops stochastic control models of cancer progression, tumor-immune interaction and immune mediated cellular dormancy. His areas of interest include mathematical biology, probability theory, stochastic processes, optimization, numerical analysis, and differential equations.
Being born and raised in Nepal, Pujan loves hiking and the outdoors. He loves road trips and driving around the US. He recommends the Blue Ridge Parkway drive around late October. Since moving to Houston, Pujan has had a great time exploring the sights, sounds, and dining options that the city has to offer.
