Biography:

Dr. Qi received her PhD in Experimental Particle Physics from the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in China. After her PhD, Dr. Qi worked at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) as an Associate Scientist (2000-2004). Dr. Qi received her medical physics training at the Medical College of Wisconsin (2004-2006). Prior to joining UCLA, she worked at Medical College of Wisconsin and University of Colorado Denver as an Assistant Professor. She is certified by the American Board of Radiology in therapeutic radiologic physics. Dr. Qi's research interests include biological/functional imaging guided radiation therapy and adaptive radiation therapy, respiration and motion management, clinical outcome assessment and biological modeling.
