As an undergraduate, Ara studied physics and mathematics with an emphasis towards computational physics. A wide array of questions that remain unanswered in the rapid progression of radiation oncology have brought him to the field of Medical Physics. Currently seeking a topic/area to develop into doctoral research project.
