Current Residents

Michael Cohen:
I am currently a second year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC. Prior to joining LANDAUER, I attended Columbia University to complete a Master’s degree. This residency is about learning and exposing yourself to as many systems and modalities as possible. The LANDAUER structure allows for learning beyond your own location to understand tools and practices and allows for broadening your perspective through interaction with physicists and residents at numerous other locations.
Julien-Fabrice Momo:
I am currently a second year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC. I obtained my Master of Science in Medical Physics from East Carolina University where I also did some research pertaining to OSL (Optically Stimulated Luminescence) and its applications. My time at LANDAUER has been very pleasant and I’ve had the opportunity to work with a fantastic group of physicists who are not only experienced but also down-to-earth. Moreover, there is no better feeling than to be given the opportunity to perform or assist in some physics duties (IMRT QA, SBRT, weeklies etc.) that consequently enhances workflow and productivity.
Naomi Morales-Medina:
I am a second year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident and in training to become a certified clinical Medical Physicist with specialization in radiation therapy. My aspirations through this career is to inspire a vision of better health care for cancer patients. I graduated from both Duke University with a M.S. in Medical Physics and the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras Campus with a B.S. in Physics. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to my hometown in Puerto Rico, spend time with family and engage in sports.
Dillon Ellis:
I am a second year LANDAUER resident at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Atlanta. I attended the University of North Georgia for my B.S. in Physics, East Carolina University for my M.S. in Medical Physics. Currently I serve as a First Lieutenant in the Army Reserves. Over the past two years I have gained hands-on experience with various forms of machine quality assurance to include LINAC and CT QA, as well as experience with brachytherapy, SRS, and SBRT treatments. LANDAUER leadership has been incredibly understanding in my time commitment to the military. LANDAUER has vast resources and the community of physicists have given me unlimited opportunities to better myself as a clinical physicist. I could not have asked for a better place to start my career.
Brandon Behnke:
I am a second year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) Chicago site. I attended San Diego State University to earn a master’s in science. The last few months have taught me the entire inner working of a hospital, as well as special procedures like IORT and Brachytherapy. LANDAUER has allowed me to expand upon my knowledge and has provided a community of physicists and other staff to support this growth.
Jeff Hou:
I am a second year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) site in Newnan, GA. I have a PhD in Optical Physics and I got my Graduate Certificate in medical physics from Wayne State University School Medicine. I am interested in how to improve the QA work efficiency and novel treatment strategies.
Brian Gardiner:
I am a first year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America site in Zion near Chicago. Prior to LANDAUER, I attended the National University of Ireland Galway for my M.S in Medical Physics. Undertaking a residency is about receiving comprehensive training in the core competencies required to deliver a high standard of radiation oncology physics at both an operational and clinical level. The LANDAUER program gives residents the platform they need to achieve this through its structure which affords opportunities to residents to gain experience with a diverse set of the most modern radiation oncology equipment and treatment modalities available. In addition, strong educational support is available to residents where they can draw on the knowledge and expertise of the large group of well credentialed & vastly experienced LANDAUER medical physicists.
Andrew Greene:
I am a first year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Atlanta. I received my B.S. in physics at Morehead State University and my M.S. in Medical Physics at the University of Kentucky. I serve in the U.S. Army Reserve as a medical logistics officer and have always found LANDAUER to be more than accommodating to my military commitments. The team here is outstanding with employees from all areas of clinical expertise stepping up without hesitation to ensure the development and success of the Medical Physics residents. I have had the opportunity to get hands on experience, performing TG142 based QA, Patient Specific IMRT QA and SRS QA. I look forward to continuing to grow through the shared experiences of the many great LANDAUER physicists.
Feng-Ju Yeh:
I am a first year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) Atlanta site. I obtained my B.S. in Biomedical Imaging and Radiological Science from National Yang-Ming University in Taiwan and finished my master’s in medical physics at Duke University. Through the past few months in the residency program, the hands-on clinical education and the close professional relationship with mentors and peers allow me to improve greatly and to absorb different perspectives. Also, the community of physicists have provided vast sources as well as the engaging environment. I am very glad to join LANDAUER to begin the next stage of my professional career.
Andrew Jaffe:
I am a first year LANDAUER Medical Physics resident at the Levine Cancer Institute site in Charlotte, NC. After obtaining my B.A. in physics at the University of Chicago, I earned my M.S. in Medical Physics at Thomas Jefferson University, where I did research on the current feasibility of machine learning automated dosimetry. Between LANDAUER and Levine Cancer Institute, I have enjoyed being exposed to the methodologies and philosophies of a diverse array of coworkers and teammates. I look forward to being able to contribute more and more to this environment as I grow as a Medical Physicist. When I’m not in the clinic, you can most likely find me cooking, watching movies, or biking the Greenways of Charlotte!
