Health Sciences Assistant Clinical Professor, Radiation Oncology

Dr. Yang is an Assistant Professor in the UCLA Department of Radiation Oncology. He received his B.S. in Engineering Physics from the University of California - Berkeley, and M.S. in Physics and PhD in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Prior to joining UCLA, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Stanford Department of Radiation Oncology. His basic research interests include non-convex and large search-space inverse optimization problems encountered in dynamic radiation delivery trajectories, as well as applying Monte Carlo methods to studying the microdosimetry and radiation biology of novel particle, and ultrahigh-dose rate radiation therapy modalities. His clinical research interests include the applying the latest technologies and processes to improving efficiency and patient-safety in the clinic.
