Cameron is a PhD student whose research is focused on the radiation dose that patients (specifically children and infants) receive while undergoing diagnostic computed tomography (CT) examinations.

This research is accomplished by using the UF/NCI phantom library to simulate CT scans in Monte Carlo

N-Particle transport code and create a CT dose library that can then be used to estimate organ doses to a patient.

Cameron is currently working with a cohort of hospitals to estimate organ doses for millions of pediatric and adult patients across the US and Canada for an epidemiology study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with the short title Radiation Induced Cancers.

Cameron enjoys socializing with friends, going to the gym, cooking, and travelling.
