I work on GPU accelerated Monte Carlo simulations of external beam radiotherapy supporting an absorbed dose calculation engine named ARCHER. I am also involved in the development of a GEANT4 based microdosimetry platform.

Future plans:

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Medical Physics with the intent of procuring an ABR certification in therapeutic medical physics to work as a physicist supporting a radiation oncology department.

When not in the lab:

I particularly enjoy riding my motorcycle when Wisconsin weather allows.
