Fereshteh completed her PhD in applied mathematics for the life and social sciences at Arizona State University in 2017. Her research was focused on building a computational framework using multiscale deterministic mathematical models of tumor growth fed with laboratory data in order to better understand the role of cancer stem cells (CSC), endothelial cells (EC), and their crosstalk on tumor development. This computational model was used to predict optimal combinations of chemotherapy and targeted therapy to treat head and neck cancer. Then she completed two years of postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago Medicine in the Section of Hematology/Oncology where she worked on developing a multiscale 3D agent-based modeling-experimental framework to quantify the influence of two different mechanisms of tumor cell-kill employed by immune cells and to suggest the best strategies for administering combined immune and targeted therapies.
