Albin Gonzalez - Chief Medical Physicist
Albin Gonzalez was born and raised in Panama. He came to the United States to pursue a postgraduate degree in physics at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He became interested in Medical Physics when searching for a topic for his thesis. He came across a medical physics research group, and became very interested in the work and wanted to participate. He was attracted to the fact that, with medical research, there was a patient care angle to the work.
