"To create physics and engineering models and systems for the scientific testing of biomedical hypothesis in vitro, in vivo, and in clinical trials."

Education And Training
  • PhD, University of Arizona, 1990 - Mechanical Engineering, Minor in Electrical Engineering
  • MSci, University of Arizona, 1987 - Mechanical Engineering


My career has been characterized by the development of mathematical models, devices, techniques and systems for both the laboratory and the clinic for the advancement of cancer research. Currently, I am interested in novel ways of using our ability to sculpt radiation dose in radiation oncology to enhance the beneficial effects of radiotherapy; for example, by activating drugs, genes or nanoparticles in a dose-dependent manner.  I am also interested in novel therapeutic applications of high intensity focused ultrasound.
