  • Medical Physicist, UPMC CancerCenter

I provide clinical physics services in the areas of external beam radiation therapy and brachytherapy at UPMC Passavant and Gamma Knife radiosurgery at UPMC Presbyterian. My research has focused on Monte Carlo applications in the simulation of radiation therapy and dose verification using portal imaging technique and gradually moves to motion study with MR and MV portal imagers.
