Ana is a PhD student who originally became interested in Medical Physics after shadowing Dr Arreola as an undergraduate student. She soon discovered that Medical Physics was a perfect fit and quickly changed her major.

A recent MS graduate, Ana’s final project was titled “Comparing Image Quality in a CT Phantom with a Commercially-Available Harder X-Ray Beam Spectra”. Her current research is focused on computed tomography image quality and dose measurements.

Ana enjoys yoga, dancing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family.
