Sam Richard, Ph.D.

Dr. Richard was Dr. Siewerdsen’s first PhD student in Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto. Sam’s research involved the first development of cascaded systems analysis and task-based detectability index for dual-energy imaging. His work guided the development of new dual-energy radiography systems for early-stage lung cancer detection. Sam continued in a postodoctoral fellowship and as Assistant Professor at Duke University, where he extended task-based analysis to computed tomography in collaboration with Dr. Ehsan Samei. He is now a Project Leader at the Carestream Health Research & Innovation Labs, where he oversees all pre-clinical evaluations of new medical imaging products and manages collaborations with clinical sites.
