Research Interests

“My research interests include clinical trials of novel therapeutics in combination with radiation therapy particularly in the treatment of brain and prostate tumors. In addition, I have been very involved in treatment planning research and education for IMRT and IGRT. As residency director, I have established online educational opportunities for residents and students to better enable more efficient learning.”
