He graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Ph.D. in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering. Following his doctoral studies, he spent several years working for a start-up company developing novel solutions for compact particle accelerators and plasma-material interactions. He also completed post-graduate studies in Medical Physics at the University of Chicago in 2014 followed be a two-year residency in Medical Physics at Washington University in St. Louis.
Following his residency training, Dr. Reilly became a faculty Instructor in Radiation Oncology-Medical Physics where he was selected to serve as the Chief Physicist for Dosimetry and Treatment Planning services at Washington University in St. Louis. He later joined USC in April 2018 where he now serves as the lead Physicist for Radiotherapy Treatment Planning. Dr. Reilly has presented and published multiple studies investigating the use of technology in patient care. He has received NIH funding in the form on a R21 for his research investigating the use of novel imaging technologies to position patients in Radiation Oncology.
