Research Interests:

"An area of great interest to me is the effect of temperature on tumors and normal tissues. Currently, the potential of reducing the strong skin reactions frequently associated with radiotherapy by cooling the skin of the patient during treatment. Other areas of interest include brachytherapy, Sterotactic Radiosurgery, IMRT, and quality assurance."
