Research

Dr. Fox's research centers on techniques for decision making and automation that enable software systems to perform intelligently and exhibit goal-directed behavior in a clinical environment. The solutions to this problem require approaches that cut across many different academic fields. His research draws on areas such as artificial intelligence, constrained optimization methods, computational radiation dosimetry, and visualization methods. Dr. Fox's current research activities are in magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy applied to tumor delineation, automated treatment planning, and dose calculation methods.
