Pertinent work experience:
I was in charge of the CNS radiation oncology service at Indiana University from 2004-2006 and have been in charge of the CNS radiation oncology service at Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital sice 2006. I am a panel member of the International Consensus Conference for Brain Metastases.
Pertinent training and education:
I have undergone 8 years of training pertinent to clinical and radiation oncology (foreign and US). During my residency at U of Minnesota, I have had extensive experience with CNS oncology because it is a tertiary brain tumor referral center.
