PhD, Biomedical Engineering, Northwestern University

I am an assistant attending physicist in the Department of Medical Physics. My research is focused on developing quantitative MR biomarkers to assess treatment response and using motion-resolved reconstruction techniques to track patient motion in radiotherapy. Other research interests include auto-detection and segmentation, image reconstruction, image registration, motion management, and super resolution using deep learning. My primary clinical responsibilities are to provide MRI physics support to radiotherapy and MRI quality assurance, maintain safety standards, and enforce health regulations.

I received my PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2016 and then worked as an MR Clinical Scientist at Philips Healthcare North America before joining the faculty of Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2020.


Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
