Ed Stafford is a PhD student whose research is focused on working with the Veterinary Medicine and Aerospace Engineering teams to create a robotic imaging system for large animals. This system aims to improve current image quality and reduce dose to imaging staff. 

Ed’s undergraduate research was focused on biophysics and included studying how the G-quadruplex formation unfolds in chromosome tails. His MS research was focused on a tool for motion evaluation in the frequency space, aptly named “MoTRAK”.

Ed especially enjoys the patient care/interaction aspect of medical physics and looks forward to helping mold future generations of medical physicists.

Ed enjoys watching Gator football, spending time with his dogs, and discovering new and interesting local restaurants and bars in Gainesville.
