Postdoctoral Researcher (Physics)
I am a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Radiation Therapy Medical Physics research group. I am working to develop machine learning tools in order to predict outcomes of radiation therapy. Specifically, I am interested in the modelling and prediction of tumour control and normal tissue complication probability following radiation therapy for patients.
I completed my PhD in biomedical Engineering in December of 2019, where my research was in the development of novel biomedical imaging modalities using radiation induced ultrasound. I maintain a research interest in these imaging modalities as well.
