Profile Summary

My research career has centered on developing and evaluating advanced diagnostic imaging algorithms, including several that are now in clinical use worldwide. I also have expertise in the science of image quality metrology, and won the Sylvia Sorkin Greenfield award for best paper of the year in the journal Medical Physics in 1996. I have served in senior administration at Duke University as Associate Vice Provost responsible for the academic and programmatic aspects of launching a new joint-venture university in China. I was the founding Director of the Duke Medical Physics Graduate Program that offers PhD and MS degrees in areas including imaging science. I have leadership experience at the national level chairing an education council and serving as President of two national professional associations. I served as co-chair of the Physics of Medical Imaging conference for SPIE in 1998-2000.
