Lech S. Papiez
Lech S. Papiez received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the Silesian University, Katowice, Poland, in 1977. From 1978 to 1981, he worked as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics in the Silesian University, and from 1981 till 1984, he was a scholar at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, Dublin, Ireland. From 1984 to 1998, he was a Research Fellow at the Physics Department of the University of Manitoba, Canada. In 1989, he moved to London Regional Cancer Center in London, Ontario, Canada, where he completed residency in medical physics in 1991. In 1992, he joined the Radiation Oncology Department of the Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Ind, where he worked first as an Associate Scientist (1992–1996), as an Assistant Professor (1996–2001), and as an Associate Professor and the Director of the Radiation Physics (2001–2006). In 2006, he joined the Departments of Radiation Oncology and Radiology and School of Graduate Studies in Radiological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. His research interests comprise computational models in radiation therapy, transport theory of radiation, and Monte Carlo methods of dose calculation for radiotherapy treatment planning. He works also on optimization of radiotherapy delivery including development of algorithms, technological devices, and techniques for improving treatment of patient bodies susceptible to motion and deformation during therapy. Papiez is a Member of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine.
