Alphonso completed his B.A. in Physics at the State University of New York at Geneseo. He then went to Syracuse University for a Ph.D. in gravitational modeling. After participating for a short time in a research group involved with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Observatory (LIGO) in Louisiana, he switched his field of study to medical imaging. He became involved in the Syracuse Medical Imaging Research Group (SMIRG) once his M.S. in Physics at Syracuse University was completed.
Alphonso's Ph.D. research involved nonrigid registration and kinetic modeling of dynamic breast PET and MR images to develop a non-invasive (without biopsy) breast cancer detection.
His desire to work with applied Medical physics brought him to Upstate Medical Physics in July 2009. In December of 2011, he graduated from the Upstate Medical Physics CAMPEP accredited residency program and became a staff medical physicist at UMP. After passing Part III of the ABR Diagnostic Radiologic Physics exam in 2012, Alphonso became a Diplomate in Diagnostic Medical Physics of the American Board of Radiology.
Alphonso was born and raised in Rochester NY.
