UCLH Proton Beam Therapy Physics

1st Floor East
250 Euston Road
London NW1 2PG, UK


Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Department of Medical Physics and Bioengineering, I am also the Operational Lead for Proton Beam Therapy Physics at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Prior to taking up my current position in 2013, I gained over twelve years’ experience in proton beam therapy physics at both Loma Linda University Medical Center and University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in the United States.

My current research interest is in the development and clinical implementation of advanced proton beam therapy (PBT) technology for the treatment of cancer. UCL Hospitals are developing one of the two first high energy PBT facilities in the UK to serve jointly as a national PBT service, due to commence treatment in 2018. I’m a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, and serve on a number of professional committees in both the UK and US.
