Curriculum Vitae

I’m a medical physics researcher based at the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia. My research interests include applications of 3D printing in radiation oncology, the quantitative assessment of radiotherapy treatment quality and complexity, and radiation dosimetry. I was previously employed as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Queensland University of Technology and I maintain adjunct academic appointments and continue to supervise higher degree students. Complete lists of publications, presentations and supervisions are available on this site.
