I am an assistant attending medical physicist in the External Beam Treatment Planning section of the Department of Medical Physics. I work closely with the Department of Radiation Oncology to develop procedures for and provide quality assurance of radiation treatment plans for our patients.

As the leader of the cranial stereotactic radiosurgery and breast treatment planning groups, I use new technologies to improve planning techniques, systems, and treatment for people with brain lesions and breast cancer. In addition, I train medical physicists and radiation oncology and medical physics residents.
