Expertises

Proton therapy; Lung cancer; Moving targets; Motion management in radiotherapy; Dose calculation; Image registration

Main research areas

My main research area is investigating a safe way of treating tumours with proton therapy that are moving during the treatment e.g. due to breathing.

Current research

I'm investigating the breath-hold approach for proton therapy where the patient is asked to hold his/her breath while the treatment is delivered. In this way the tumour is assumed to be still and the treatment would be safe to deliver. The research is mainly carried by simulations, that will be followed by experimental studies.

Potential conflicts of interest

None.
