My research is directed at quantification and minimization of the dose away from the treatment site during radiation therapy. This includes photons, and, when relevant, neutrons. I use both measurement techniques (including ion chambers, TLD, neutron moderators, and Bonner Spheres) as well as computational methods (primarily MCNPX).

Additionally, I study the impact of these doses. I use and evaluate risk models that are available for estimating late effects (particularly second malignancies) from low doses of radiation.

Depending on the student’s interests, a tutorial with me would provide experience with Monte Carlo methods, measurements of secondary photons and/or neutrons, and study of risk models for late effects.
