My Lab is focused on Radiation Biology Research aiming to optimize the use of radiation(s) as advanced radiotherapy modalities and minimize the risk associated with uncontrolled exposures. I work with a multidisciplinary team of Radiation and Cancer Biologists, Bioinformaticians Radiation Physicists, and Clinical Oncologists.

We collaborate, locally, nationally and internationally with some of the top global radiotherapy centres. Our work includes in silico modelling and preclinical studies in vitro right through to translational studies in patients receiving radiotherapy as part of advanced clinical trials.
