Suphatra received a PhD in Physics with a concentration in Biophysics from Syracuse University in 2011. Her dissertation focused on developing an optoelectronic detector and its operation system to study single-cell motility. She is an expert in hardware and software interface and signal processing.
After receiving her degree from Syracuse University, she voluntarily assisted in several projects at Upstate Medical Physics (UMP); including estimating patient specific Mean Glandular Dose (MGD) during diagnostic mammography and Computed Tomography Dose Profile width analysis. In addition, she shadowed members of Upstate Medical Physics on several field assignments and further developed her love for diagnostic medical physics. Suphatra then took additional medical physics courses from the CAMPEP-accredited program, University at Buffalo to fulfill ABR requirements to take the Medical Physics Part I Examination.
Suphatra joined Upstate Medical Physics as a Diagnostic Medical Physics Resident in December 2013. She is proud to be a member of such a diverse team of talented and professional individuals at UMP.
She is originally from Thailand and now lives in North Syracuse, New York. When not devoting her time at UMP; Suphatra enjoys spending time with her family, hiking the great outdoors, camping, sewing and dancing.
