Abstract
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 am currently in the M.A. program in English at CSU Long Beach and have presented a paper and a poster on dance studies topics at national conferences within recent years.
