Dr. Ray is an Assistant Professor in Medical Physics. Dr. Ray’s research interests are focused on using the volumes of data generated by cancer centers to inform important clinical decisions surrounding patient care. Past projects include using radiomics features extracted from computed tomography images to predict non-small cell lung cancer outcomes, developing metrics to evaluate the performance of publicly available knowledge-based treatment models, and investigating the sensitivity of transit images to detect changes during treatment. She is currently developing an automated batch-processing framework to investigate the dosimetric gains possible with daily adaptive planning.
Dr. Ray is also an active clinical medical physicist in both external beam radiotherapy and brachytherapy. She has an expanding role in resident education as a UCSD lecturer and rotation mentor.
