Nancy obtained her PhD at Yale University in 2009. Her PhD dissertation research was focused on non-invasive and quantitative evaluation of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis using MRI. Subsequently, she started her medical physics training and has been certified by American Board of Radiology (DABR) since 2013. Nancy is currently a Clinical Medical Physicist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Therapeutic Radiology at Yale University School of Medicine. Her research interests lie in MRI guided radiotherapy, flattening filter free X-rays, nanoparticle-based radiosensitizers, applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) in radiotherapy.
