Position: Professor and Chair/Chief Department of Oncology
Affiliation: Associate Scientist, Lawson Research Institute


Areas of Expertise: radiotherapy, brain tumors, genitourinary tumors


Brief Description of Research:
I am a Radiation Oncologist specializing in Genitourinary and Central Nervous System Malignancies. I am also a Professor and Chair/Chief in the Department of Oncology, a cross-appointed Professor in the Department of Medical Biophysics and an Associate Scientist in the Lawson Health Research Institute.  I received both my medical degree from the University of Western Ontario, where I also completed my residency in Radiation Oncology. I subsequently completed fellowship in Radiation Oncology in the area of adult and pediatric brain tumor treatment was completed at the University of California at San Francisco. My primary areas of clinical practice are in genitourinary and central nervous system tumors and areas of research interest are clinical trials and multi-modality image guided radiotherapy and cancer imaging.  I collaborate closely with imaging scientists at Western, Robarts and Lawson and clinical collaborators in medical imaging, pathology, urology and neurosciences.  For treating primary and metastatic brain tumors we continue to develop our precision radiotherapy techniques combined with non-invasive frame system and utilizing image guidance to deliver stereotactic radiotherapy for the treatment of recurrent primary and metastatic brain tumors.   I am also interested in novel functional imaging techniques for the characterization of primary and metastatic brain tumors.
