Personal profile


Kaye Morgan works in x-ray imaging in the School of Physics and Astronomy in the Faculty of Science at Monash University, currently holding a Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council (ARC). Previous to this, Kaye held a Veski Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, spending several years at the Technische Universität München as a Hans Fischer Fellowship.  This followed an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award, awarded in the year following her PhD. 

Kaye works in the field of x-ray optics, developing new methods of imaging that reach new scales in resolution, speed and sensitivity, and access new contrast modalities. One such modality is phase contrast x-ray imaging (PCXI), which examines changes in the x-ray phase rather than the x-ray intensity, revealing soft tissue structures like the airways that are not seen in conventional x-ray imaging. Another is x-ray dark-field imaging, which reveals where sub-pixel unresolved structures scatter the x-ray wavefield. Dr Morgan is working both on developing and extending these methods and on applying them to medical research questions. Imaging is performed largely at the SPring-8 synchrotron, the Australian Synchrotron and the Munich Compact Light Source.
