As Chief of the Computer Service, I coordinate the activities of a team of medical physicists, programmer/analysts, and computer management staff in developing and supporting advanced computer applications that service the departments of Medical Physics, Radiation Oncology, and Radiology. A major focus of the team is the development of computer systems for external radiotherapy and brachytherapy.

My own research interests have focused on improving the accuracy of radiation therapy by developing new patient imaging and treatment techniques to locate tumors more precisely and to reduce the movement of internal organs during treatment.
