About Matthew

Driven by Innovative Treatment Options

In graduate school, I realized I needed to be in a discipline that had immediate clinical relevance and one of my classmates suggested Medical Physics. I was immediately drawn to the patient-focused clinical work of radiation therapy. This field has experienced exponential growth over the last 20 years and gives patients the most innovative and efficient treatment available. The most exciting thing to come into the industry is the incorporation of big data on a day-to-day basis using AI-based programming. The patient-focused culture and everyday application of these innovative programs are why I choose to work at Valley.
