Dylan Yamabe Breitkreutz, PhD

Biography

Dylan Yamabe Breitkreutz completed his BSc in Mathematics and Physics at the Augustana Faculty of the University of Alberta (Camrose, Alberta, Canada) in 2012, his MSc in Medical Physics at the University of Alberta (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) in 2015 and his PhD in Medical Physics at the University of Victoria (Victoria, British Columbia, Canada) in 2019. Dylan's PhD work was supported by an NSERC Vanier Scholarship and an AAPM/RSNA Fellowship. His research interests focus on Monte Carlo modeling of novel radiation therapy sources.

Dylan joined the Stanford University Medical Physics Residency in 2019.
