Personal profile


My main goal as a researcher is to develop new and novel X-ray imaging techniques or ways to advance existing modalities. I have significant expertise in working with a wide range of state-of- the-art hardware and bespoke software. I have detailed knowledge in the fundamental theory of interactions of radiation with matter, semiconductor technology, image reconstruction, machine learning, detector characterisation, electric field simulation, Monte-Carlo simulation, analogue and digital electronics, pulse shape analysis and signal processing.
