Senior Lecturer, School of Chemistry & Physics

Ph.d in Physics (University of Portsmouth)

I am a physicist whose research interests are in medical imaging and radiation therapy. I have led and supervised research in image guided radiotherapy, translation of new technologies and techniques, and monte-carlo techniques for dosimetry of complex radiotherapy treatment techniques. This research work has been translated into clinical practice in radiotherapy departments improving the standard of care for cancer patients. I hold a B.Sc. (Hons.) from the University of Surrey, UK and a PhD (Thesis title: Final State Effects in Neutron Compton Scattering) from the University of Portsmouth, UK. I spent four years at the Institute of Cancer Research / Royal Marsden Hospital, UK carrying out post-doctoral research in the radiotherapy research group. I currently hold the position of Senior Lecturer in the School of Chemistry and Physics within the Science & Engineering Faculty. I am the course co-ordinator of the QUT Graduate Diploma and Master of Applied Science programs in Medical Physics. Career History
