I am a board-certified medical physicist with special expertise in radiation oncology physics.
As Chief Physicist of our regional care facility in Commack, Long Island, I work closely with radiation oncologists and therapists to provide our patients with the safest, most effective treatments. Our group is responsible for calibrating linear accelerators, providing quality assurance, and planning radiation treatment . I am also the radiation safety officer for the PET and CT facility in Commack.
I earned a PhD in experimental nuclear physics from Stony Brook University in New York. Before joining Memorial Sloan Kettering, I participated in clinical research studying in vivo neutron activation and boron neutron capture therapy at Brookhaven National Laboratory, also in New York.
My current research interests include developing applications for new technologies in radiation therapy, as well as finding ways to improve safety during radiation therapy.
