SWS Clinical School

I am a post-doctoral research fellow at the South Western Sydney Clinical School, Faculty of Medicine, University of New South Wales (UNSW). I am also an affiliate member at the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research. 

I am working on the Australian Computer-Assisted Theragnostics (AusCAT), which is a framework that has been initially established across a network of Australian radiation oncology departments to enable data pooling and analyses. My responsibilities include establishing and maintaining the necessary infrastructure (software and hardware) and undertaking research investigations using this network (outcome models, decision support tools, etc.).
