Research Interests

My research address the problem of motion during ablative radiotherapy, including pancreatic and liver SBRT. My group uses a “Big Data” approach by examining the wealth of imaging data generated during clinical care to create accurate models of motion. We also research ways to track and correct for motion during treatment with kV imaging.
