  • In addition to my appointment at the Parkinson School, I also teach in the Stritch School of Medicine's Radiation Oncology Department. I have a background in experimental nuclear physics, but chose to pursue the field of medical physics to to use my radiation physics background to make a difference in people’s lives.

    • PhD, University of Liverpool
    • Residency in Medical Physics, University of California at San Francisco

    Why is this area of study important at this point in time?

    Health care is at a technological crossroad, with the implementation of automation and the advent of artificial intelligence. The field of radiology is dramatically changing the way patients are being diagnosed, and radiation therapy treatments are incorporating more and more automated delivery methods and AI based processes. From supervising automated treatment planning to designing quality assurance methods to ensure safety while benefiting from these technological advances, medical physicists are at the center of this technological revolution for patients.
