Keith T. Griffin, M.S., joined the Radiation Epidemiology Branch (REB) as a predoctoral fellow in 2017. He earned both his B.S. and M.S. in nuclear and radiological engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. Previously, Mr. Griffin worked two summers with the Center for Radiation Protection Knowledge team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory as an intern. As part of his core research interests, he has employed Monte Carlo computational simulations to calculate organ absorbed doses associated with dozens of environmental and medical external exposures. Recently Mr. Griffin returned to school to earn a doctorate degree from Georgia Tech in nuclear engineering with a minor concentration in medical physics.
In REB, Mr. Griffin is working under the mentorship of Choonsik Lee, Ph.D., senior investigator, to help establish the computational dosimetry methods needed for future epidemiological studies of proton therapy on a patient-specific basis.
