Personal profile

Research interests

My reseach focuses on the accuracy of cancer treatment, and specifically radiotherapy. I have successfuly developed image guidance solutions to improve the accuracy but also study diverse sources of inaccuracy should as organ motion, interobserver variation in target volume delineation, and microscopic spread of tumor. I spend 4 days a week at the AVL hospital. My one day at AMC focuses on the integration of macroscopic and microscopic imaging.
