I am an assistant attending physicist in the Department of Medical Physics. I received my PhD in medical physics from Duke University and completed my residency in the Physics Division of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Duke University Hospital. I am certified by the American Board of Radiology in therapeutic medical physics.
My clinical and research interests are in topics exploring the inclusion of MRI in radiotherapy and the quality assurance associated with safety in planning and delivery. I study and develop methods for improved target delineation with a focus on identifying functional tumor subunits that may have a differential response to therapy. I also work on imaging techniques that may be used to complement and extend the sensitivity of current measurements for response to therapy.
