Andrew Godley, Ph.D., is the Associate Vice Chair of Clinical Physics Operations and Quality and an Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He is part of the Department of Radiation Oncology’s Division of Medical Physics and Engineering.

Dr. Godley received his Ph.D. from the University of Sydney in high-energy physics as a member of the NOMAD experiment at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. He then undertook a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of South Carolina, conducting research in the MINOS experiment at the FermiLab in Chicago. Dr. Godley then transitioned to medical physics, completing his training at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Dr. Godley subsequently joined the medical physics staff in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Cleveland Clinic where he covered brachytherapy, SBRT, and Gamma Knife, as well as machine QA and commissioning. He moved to the Miami Cancer Institute to work on the new MR-linac, where he helped to develop the program, before joining the faculty at UT Southwestern as Director of Clinical Physics. Dr. Godley holds a Texas Medical Physics License and is board-certified in therapeutic radiologic physics by the American Board of Radiology.
