I am a medical physicist located at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Commack, Long Island, regional facility.
I have published several research papers on topics that include dose optimization for prostate implants, P-32 endovascular irradiation, dose distribution of endovascular brachytherapy, and evaluation of the Eclipse electron Monte Carlo dose calculation. I am currently interested in studying image registration and data fusion for planning, delivery, and adaptation of radiation therapy. I am also investigating motion assessment and management methods to improve the accuracy of stereotactic body radiation therapy and stereotactic radiosurgery.
I received a PhD in physics in 1994 from the University of Kentucky and performed postdoctoral research at the University of Louisville and at Stony Brook University Medical Center. Before joining Memorial Sloan Kettering, in 2005, I worked as a medical physicist at Stony Brook University Medical Center, at a private clinic in New York, and at Good Samaritan Hospital on Long Island.
