My research interests and clinical activity center on head and neck and thoracic malignancies. My areas of interest within these sites tend to focus on the morbidities of radiation therapy (+/- chemotherapy) with hopes of reducing future side effects. I enjoy working on these research projects with Radiation Oncology residents and students aiming to combine research endeavors with education. I continue to serve as principal investigator at OHSU for Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) and NRG studies.
