Research Interests

I am interested in the effects of respiration on tumor motion in the lung, breast, and abdomen and in utilizing image-guidance to improve the accuracy and efficacy of radiation to these areas. I have also studied parameters for treatment decisions for salvage radiation after prostatectomy for recurrent prostate cancer and the risk of lymphedema in breast cancer patients treated with radiation after lumpectomy.
