My research focuses on the implementation and continued development of patient-specific internal dosimetry for targeted molecular radiotherapy with theranostic radiopharmaceuticals. We collaborate with a number of radiation oncologists in an effort to develop new cancer therapies utilizing the synergistic properties of molecular radiotherapy with conventional external beam radiotherapy and immunotherapies.
Upon completion of my PhD, I intend to apply for a residency position in pursuit of ABR certification in therapeutic and nuclear medical physics. I hope to establish myself as a clinical medical physicist and continue to support research efforts to bring more safe and effective treatment planning to the world of molecular radiotherapy.
When not in the lab:
You can usually find me running around the isthmus and exploring new events around the city. I enjoy working out and spending what time I can in the outdoors through hiking, travel, or whatever excuse the season allows for. I also serve as a Graduate Student Representative in the Department of Medical Physics where I help facilitate communication between students and faculty as well as coordinate and organize department events.
