My research interests include intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT), Dynamic Electron Arc Radiotherapy (DEAR), and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). For IMRT, my work includes the development of the research platform, fast and accurate dose calculations, optimization based on physical and biological objectives such as generalized equivalent uniform dose (gEUD), and delivery with a dynamic multi-leaf collimator (DMLC). For VMAT, I am interested in optimization, quality assurance, and novel applications. For DEAR, I'm interested in the treatment planning and delivery verifications. For IGRT, my work includes the development of the infrastructure of the online and offline image guidance, characterization of patient anatomic changes and treatment uncertainties, margin calculations, and adaptive treatment planning. My recent research interests also include the use of AI in treatment planning, Brachytherapy dose calculation and plan optimization.

My clinical interests include prostate cancer, head and neck cancer, total body irradiation (TBI), and total skin irradiation (TSI)
