During my undergraduate degree and PhD, I developed an interest in radiobiological modelling. My initial work investigated optimisation algorithms in radiobiological modelling for Intensity Modulated RadioTherapy (IMRT). Currently, I enjoy investigating the different factors (see research interests) that influence the way radiation is delivered for treatment, and modelling the impact these changes may have on the radiobiology and patient outcome. I lead the medical physics group at the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research which includes medical physics staff at Liverpool and Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centres, as well as postdoctoral research fellows, PhD and undergraduate students. I am involved in the Australian MRI-Linac program which is being developed at the Ingham Institute. I also lead the Computer Assisted Theragnostics (AusCAT) team which is working to link distributed datasets to develop prognostic models for radiotherapy, particularly for situations where randomised clinical trial evidence is limited.
