Dr. Yang is an Assistant Professor in the UCLA Department of Radiation Oncology. He received his BS in Engineering Physics from the University of California – Berkeley, and MS 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.
