Brachy Therapy, Gynecologic Oncology, Conformal Radiation Therapy, HIV Related Oncology, Medical Humanities
I am interested in the treatment of challenging nonstandard problems in oncology as a paradigm for optimizing general oncologic treatment strategies. Typically my clinical research encompasses a variety of leading edge technologies and strategies, such as altered fractionation, radioactive implants (brachytherapy), re-irradiation strategies, 3-D conformal therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, and chemoradiotherapy.
Additionally, I have an interest in the arts and humanities, particularly literature and dance. I was awarded an M.A. degree in English from the California State University, Long Beach and have presented a paper and a poster on dance studies topics at national conferences in the past.
