About Me

I believe in finding the right treatment for each patient based on their unique situation. I am also a cancer researcher who focuses on developing new ways to treat head and neck, lung, and prostate cancers, as well as those with limited cancer spread. At the Durham VA Medical Center, I am the chief of the Radiation Oncology Service. I supervise the delivery of radiation for all types of cancer.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

My research focuses on improving treatments for patients with head and neck cancers, and lung cancers, through combinations of new medicines and advanced radiation techniques. I also study how new radiation techniques can be used to treat patients with limited cancer spread. I also lead a number of international trials for this problem.
