I am the Chief Physicist at our regional site in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. I am responsible for all radiation physics activities at this site, including quality assurance, radiation calibration, treatment planning, development of treatment protocols, implementation of advanced treatment techniques, and clinical physics consultations.

My current research interest is in dosimetry for advanced delivery techniques. I have published more than 80 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters and am the lead author for a large number of these. I have served as Chair of the Practice Guidelines Subcommittee of the Professional Council of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) for six years. I also participate in eight other AAPM committees, work groups, and task groups.

I received a PhD in Medical Physics from the Medical College of Ohio in 1995 and was certified by the American Board of Medical Physics and the American Board of Radiology. I joined the faculty of Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1999.
