Weijun Xiong, PhD

I am a board-certified assistant attending medical physicist at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Rockville Centre location, where I am actively involved in developing and supporting advanced radiation treatment for patients with different types of cancer. I am mainly focused on developing treatment plans, maintaining radiation equipment, commissioning the design of new devices, and implementing new treatment delivery techniques.

My primary research interest focuses on applying Monte Carlo simulations to improve the accuracy of radiation dose calculations in stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy. I also study biological models for external-beam radiation treatment.

I received a PhD in high-energy particle physics and was trained as a medical physicist at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.
