Special clinical interest in breast, urogenital, lung, upper and lower GI, stereotactic treatment, head and neck

Jeremy completed a Bachelor of Science in Bioinformatics prior to graduating from a Bachelor of Medicine with Honours in 2006 from the University of Sydney. He completed his radiation oncology training at Liverpool, Campbelltown and Canberra Hospitals, followed by a Fellowship at the Royal North Shore Hospital.

Jeremy subsequently took up a staff specialist position at the Illawarra/ Shoalhaven Cancer Therapy Centres and helped establish the stereotactic lung program there, in addition to holding the role of Director of Training over the last 3 years.

Jeremy is an active clinician researcher and investigator in international and national clinical trials. He has also collaborated with the University of Wollongong on PBMC signatures following radiotherapy and has authored multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals.

He has a strong interest in new treatment and imaging technologies to improve patient outcomes and is the Clinical Lead for the MRI Linac at St Vincents Darlinghurst.

Outside of work, Jeremy enjoys time with his family, which usually revolved around food.
