I received my PhD from the University of Chicago Medical Physics program in 2000. My dissertation focused on the use of video camera and surface models to imporve patient setup for radiotherapy. I started as the first medical physics resident in the radiation oncology department here at Michigan and took a faculty after finishing in 2002. I split my time between clincical server, research and teaching. My clinical work is centered on treatment planning and delivery of high dose radiation treatments in the thorax and abdomen.
My research has been diverse including, prostate tracking using RF beacons, statistical analysis of safety systems to improve usefulness, video based patient positioning.
