Dr Moretti became interested in medical physics after taking a radiation physics course as an undergraduate elective and shadowing a therapy physicist in his last summer as an undergraduate student. His undergraduate research was in non-linear dynamics – specifically, simulation and analysis of an electrolyte flow.

While he enjoyed his undergraduate studies, TJ had a strong desire to gain medical physics knowledge in order to help people. Early in his medical physics studies, he became particularly interested in imaging, especially CT.

Dr Moretti was awarded his MS in Medical Sciences with a Medical Physics concentration in Summer 2021. His MS research presentation was titled “Automation in PET for Quality Assurance Testing and Protocol Analysis“. He was awarded in PhD in Medical Sciences with a Medical Physics concentration in Summer 2024. His dissertation defense was titled “Assessment of, and Improvements to, Dosimetric Methods for Yttrium-90¬†Microsphere Radioembolization Patients for both Imaging and Therapy

TJ enjoys literature –  both the classics and more modern works. His favorite authors are Ernest Hemingway and Ayn Rand. He also enjoys competing in trivia nights!
