The area of research that I focus upon relates to my dedicated training and clinical practice in spinal metastases, brain metastases, and primary central nervous system tumours. My aim is to further our understanding of the application of radiotherapy for these diseases, and to develop new therapeutic strategies relating to the application of high precision radiotherapy technology. My primary research area is in technical evaluation and clinical trials specific to stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) of spinal tumours. In line with high precision treatments, I participate in the development of non-radiotherapeutic modalities for spine and brain tumors using photodynamic therapy and MRI guided ultrasound technology, respectively.
