Ashley Rubinstein, PhD

Director, RAD-AID Medical Physics

Ashley Rubinstein is a diagnostic and nuclear medical physics resident at the UTHealth McGovern Medical School in Houston, TX. She is a member of the UTHealth chapter of RAD-AID, through which she has worked to improve quality assurance practices and radiation safety in Morocco. With support from the IAEA, she also collaborates with radiation oncology physicists in Puebla, Mexico to develop imaging quality assurance programs at various clinics throughout the region. She envisions medical physicists playing a vital role in the work of RAD-AID by providing the expertise needed to ensure high quality images, the safety of patients, and the safety of medical personnel in low-resource regions.

Courtney Morrison, PhD

Program Manager, RAD-AID Medical Physics

Courtney Morrison is an imaging physicist at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, MI. She earned her doctoral degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with graduate research focusing on breast MRI. She completed an imaging physics residency at Henry Ford Health System. In addition to providing clinical physics support for MRI, fluoroscopy, mammography, and general radiography at Henry Ford, Courtney sits on the Radiation Safety Committee and MR Safety Committee and serves as a mentor for the imaging physics residency. She is also involved in physics education of radiology residents and technologist students. She has previously volunteered with RAD-AID Grenada and continued her involvement with RAD-AID through the Medical Physics program. She hopes that the Medical Physics program will help strengthen RAD-AID’s physics support for its in-country partners.
