Emily Marshall is completing the first year of her masters in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Medical Physics. Her research focuses on radiation dosimetry and its specific application to pediatric patient populations during interventional fluoroscopy procedures. Her ultimate goal is the creation of an in-clinic program to assist physicians with real time skin-dose and post procedural feedback for use towards improving procedures, and providing patients with safer care.
