Research Interests

II am a Medical Physics Resident at Harvard Medical School and am spending my research year at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Dr. Aerts’ lab. My interests have always lied at the intersection of physics and medicine. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Medical and Health Physics at McMaster University where I first learnt about radiation therapy and medical imaging. It became clear that despite the advances in medical technology and treatment, there were still very large hurdles to overcome in cancer treatment to improve diagnosis and treatment efficacy. This led to my Ph.D. work at the University of Toronto, which focused on developing targeted porphyrin-based multifunctional imaging and therapeutic agents for cancer. My current research interest is focused on personalized medicine and using imaging data as a predictor of clinical outcomes to inform clinical decision-making.
