I am a member of the Radiotherapy Research Group (Radiation Biology and Therapeutics). My research interests are personalised radiotherapy delivery, radiotherapy clinical trials and patient reported outcomes. My technical radiotherapy research areas are optimising treatment delivery for pelvic cancers by incorporating MR imaging, using Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) and delivering image guided brachytherapy (IGBT).
