Kyle DePew, Ph.D., received a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Physics from the University of Missouri in Columbia. His research there focused on modeling the mineral composition of dust around asymptotic giant branch stars. He subsequently was offered a Ph.D. scholarship in Physics at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, where he completed his doctoral dissertation on the evolution of Wolf-Rayet central stars of planetary nebulae.

Afterwards, Dr. DePew relocated to Oklahoma City to pursue another master’s degree in Medical Physics from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. During this time he conducted research in proton therapy planning and dosimetry. Upon graduation, he worked in health physics for two years in Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, overseeing hospital staff dosimetry and performing radioactive materials inspections.

In 2020, Dr. DePew took up a medical physics residency position in the Department of Radiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He then assumed an assistant professorship in the same department in 2022, where he will support the clinical and educational efforts of the faculty in x-ray imaging modalities. His current research interests concern CT dosimetry.
