Chuan Zeng, PhD


PhD, University of Massachusetts

I am a board-certified therapeutic radiologic medical physicist at MSK Commack. I provide clinical physics services in all aspects of radiation therapy to ensure high-quality patient care.

I have a broad background in physics, mathematics, and computer programming. My main research interests are proton therapy treatment-planning methods, optimization techniques, and motion management. I have published many peer-reviewed articles and numerous abstracts. I frequently serve as a peer reviewer for many prestigious journals.

Upon receiving my PhD from the University of Massachusetts in 2011, I went on to a research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. I later moved to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for a one-year fellowship in medical physics and a clinical residency. I was certified by the American Board of Radiology in 2017 and became a faculty member at Memorial Sloan Kettering in February 2018.

I am a member of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American Society for Radiation Oncology.
