Research Interest:

In August 2013, I joined the MUSC Department of Radiation Oncology as an academic clinician with the objective to develop as a clinical and translational physician with scientific expertise in epidemiology and survivorship for cancer patients. My primary research activities are focused on developing standardized data collection methods using evidence-based annotated fixed variable designs to improve outcomes for cancer patients treated with radiotherapy. The primary objective of these current activities are to build a robust research tool that collects structured prospective data that can be retrospectively analyzed and to use this resource to facilitate prospective research applications put forth by faculty members. I am working closely with Dr. Warren and several members of the Cancer Prevention and Control Program to integrate epidemiologic and behavioral variables into the design of this database. These multi-disciplinary efforts will provide very novel applications linking clinical cancer treatment outcomes with epidemiologic and survivorship based initiatives for radiation oncology.
