I have the privilege to be the Chief of the Durham VA Radiation Oncology Service, where I care for veterans who have served our country. I am a dedicated educator, serving as the Residency Program Director for the Duke Radiation Oncology Residency Program.  I am also a cancer researcher developing novel treatment techniques for patients with head and neck cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and those limited metastatic disease, and integration of these treatments with drug therapies.
