Bryan is a Navy veteran of 5.5 years who served as a nuclear propulsion plant operator and watch-officer instructor at Naval Nuclear Prototype Training Unit in Charleston, South Carolina. His research interests focus on MRI-guided photon therapy using the Elekta Unity. He is specifically looking into optimizing the Unity’s adaptive treatment planning times and utilizing the Unity’s new gating features.

In his free time, Bryan enjoys weightlifting and video games, and he is starting to get into hiking. He has been a Dallas Cowboys fan since the Sunday after he was born and can always explain why next year is going to be their year.
