I am a professor of radiation oncology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. I specialize in gynecologic, breast, and prostate cancers, with an emphasis on high dose rate brachytherapy for cervix, uterine, vagina, and breast cancers, along with prostate seed implantation, image-guided radiation therapy, and intensity modulated radiation therapy. I am actively involved with clinical research with more than 175 peer reviewed publications. I am also ABR board examiner and on the editorial board of Brachytherapy and also senior editor for Red journal. I provide oversight and supervision of clinical radiation oncology at UPMC Magee and UPMC Mercy Hospital. I am actively involved in residency and medical student teaching and research as program director. My research interests are 3D image-based brachytherapy, IMRT and IGRT, outcome analysis for breast prostate and gynecological cancers, Clinical Pathways, and NCDB data analysis.
