Ricky Savjani

My name is Ricky Savjani, a resident physician in the Department of Radiation Oncology at UCLA. My research interests lie in leveraging population inferences to understand the underpinnings of human cognition and to better guide oncological care for cancer patients. This also includes functional sparing and optimal delivery of radiation to the brain to minimize toxicity and cognitive impairments. I am interested in functional and structural neuroimaging using MRI to tackle these challenges. Additionally, I am interested in AI, brain brachytherapy, and functional radiosurgery. I am thrilled to be able to participate in the UCLA TNT program to turn ideas into technologies to optimize individual patient care.
