Biography

A native of Western New York, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Physics from the Rochester Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. in Biophysics from the State University of New York at Buffalo: Roswell Park Division.

Working "behind the scenes" my role as a medical physicist is to ensure that our complex technologies deliver exactly what our physicians order, our dosimetrists plan, and our therapists intend.

As Director of Medical Physics Education for our department I coordinate our training of staff and our radiation oncology residents in radiation physics. Fielding questions from a group of very intelligent people is a challenge that I enjoy and working with a team of experienced and talented physicists makes the challenge that much more enjoyable.

My research interests center on innovative ways to provide our physicians with even more information from our therapy images to help them better diagnose and manage radiation therapy.
