Board Certifications

Health Physics

I have worked in radiation protection and health physics for more than 30 years. In that time, I worked on radiation protection programs for energy and industrial companies, and for more than 15 years, I have worked in operations and research in medical health physics. Our goal is to support radiology, x-ray imaging, nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, and radiochemistry, as well as surgery and medicine. My research focuses on developing and testing radiation imaging and therapy tools and techniques. We want to use what we find to improve radiation protection practices so that patients get the most benefit with reduced risk.

I am certified in comprehensive health physics and am a licensed medical physicist in New York State. I am a diplomate of the American Board of Health Physics. I am on the board of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements and am a council member and chair of several scientific committees. I served as a member of the International Commission on Radiological Protection Committee 3 on Protection in Medicine and am currently chair of a scientific committee. I was a member of the Joint Safety Committee of the Society of Interventional Radiology and the American College of Radiology, chair of the Radiation Safety Committee of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, resident and executive council member of the medical physics section of the Health Physics Society, president of the Greater New York Chapter of the Health Physics Society, and a board member of the Radiological and Medical Physics Society of New York.
