Vivian Rodriguez was introduced to the Washington University physics group in January 2010 when she began working on her PhD thesis on Novel Techniques towards Improving Helical Tomotherapy Delivery and Quality Assurance. She was later accepted into the Washington University Medical Physics Residency Program in which she developed a deep appreciation for the clinic. Upon graduating from the residency in 2014, she began working as a staff clinical physicist in the department. Her primary clinical interests are brachytherapy and ViewRay, and she has been involved in multiple commissioning projects ranging from treatment machines to treatment planning systems. In spring 2016, she became the Physics Treatment Planning Co-Chief, in which one of the many responsibilities entail working with the 20+ dosimetrists employed within the Barnes Jewish Hospital network.
