Professor Shackleford received his Ph.D in 2011 from Drexel University for his work on GPU accelerated deformable three-dimensional medical image registration. The algorithms produced by his thesis form the high performance B-spline based image registration core of the open source medical image
processing software Plastimatch (http://www.plastimatch.org).
Prior to joining Drexel as an Assistant Professor, Dr. Shackleford was a post-doctoral researcher in the Radiation Oncology Department at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston where he conducted tumor motion management research for photon and proton based radiation therapy.
