Medical physicists are health care professionals with specialized training in the medical applications of physics. Their work often involves the use of x-rays and accelerated charged particles, radioactive substances, ultrasound, magnetic and electric fields, infra-red and ultraviolet light, heat and lasers in diagnosis and therapy. Most medical physicists work in hospital diagnostic imaging departments, cancer treatment facilities, or hospital-based research establishments. Others work in universities, government, and industry.

Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I chose to pursue a graduate degree in science because it is one of the few opportunities in life which gives you the freedom to tackle an interesting problem from infinitely many self-driven angles.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
Joining the Medical Imaging Research Group (MIRG), lead by Dr. Anna Celler, was my main reason for studying at UBC. MIRG is a team of excellent physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists who do one of a kind research on diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine procedures, and who I am humbled to join.
