Xiang Li

I am an associate attending medical physicist and the lead physicist overseeing clinical physics operations at both of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s outpatient locations in Rockville Centre and Commack on Long Island. My responsibilities include providing and ensuring clinical coverage, supervising faculty physicists and planners, implementing new advanced treatment techniques, and promoting more-productive research activities for faculty physicists at the Long Island facilities.

My research interests are in medical image segmentation, deformable image registration, intensity modulated radiation therapy optimization algorithms, image-guided radiation therapy, and respiratory motion effects and management in LINAC-based lung stereotactic body radiation therapy treatment. I have published 31 peer-reviewed articles and numerous abstracts, and I have frequently served as guest associate editor and reviewer for many prestigious journals.

I received my PhD in biomedical engineering from Tsinghua University in Beijing in 2000 and finished my medical physics residency at Columbia University in 2005. I was certified by the American Board of Radiology in 2007 and became a faculty member of Memorial Sloan Kettering in December 2014.
