I am very excited to be one of the first medical physics residents at OHSU. My interest in medical physics began with a love of physics and a desire to help people suffering from cancer. The residency program at OHSU will give me the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be a successful clinical physicist. I am looking forward to learning from the experts on staff in Radiation Medicine and also to being a citizen of Portland.
