Biography

Dr. Lee joined our department in 2009 as a clinical faculty member after finishing his training at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando. He is a board-certified therapeutic radiologic physicist by the American Board of Radiology and also an authorized medical physicist in High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). He is actively involved in various clinical services including brachytherapy and image-guided external radiation therapy. He is the lead physicist for a very active ocular brachytherapy program. Dr. Lee also serves as an associate director of the department’s medical physics residency program. He also provides physics support for various on-going departmental research projects.
