Dr. Goldbaum earned a BA in physics and mathematics from Ohio Wesleyan University. He then earned a PhD in theoretical physics from Cornell University. After graduation he served as a postdoctoral research associate in the physics department at the University of Arizona, where he went on to earn a PSM in medical physics. While pursuing his PSM, Dr. Goldbaum investigated the effect of window and level settings on the accuracy of image fusion achieved via the ExacTrac patient positioning system. He also investigated the use of a normoxic shell model to predict tumor control probability.
His interests include soccer, movies and all sorts of outdoor activities.
