My major research interest is in radiation therapy for lymphomas, genitourinary cancers—including prostate cancer, bladder cancer and seminoma—and late effects of treatment, especially second cancers. Current research activities include study of image guided precision radiotherapy. I also have a long-standing interest in cancer classification with an emphasis on staging and prognostic factors. In addition, my current interests include the application of modern information and communication technologies in cancer control.
