I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2000 as a senior medical physicist and am currently an assistant attending physicist in the External Beam Treatment Planning section of the Department of Medical Physics.
My work involves developing and providing quality control for radiation therapy treatment plans. I have expertise in specialized treatment techniques such as respiratory gating and stereotactic radiosurgery, which enhances precision during radiation therapy while sparing healthy tissues surrounding a tumor. I am also actively involved in the clinical process of radiation therapy, from simulation to delivering the final treatment.
Currently, my research focuses on image-guided radiation treatment techniques that use machines with integrated imaging to account for body, tumor, and other tissue movements. This approach may improve the accuracy and outcome of radiation treatment.
I received a PhD in physics from the University of Cordoba in Argentina.
