Associate Professor, Physics

Biography

My research activity is centred on the optical properties of glasses and glass ceramics, particularly as they apply to radiation imaging. We have funding under the NERF scheme to develop new materials for radiation imaging and sensing, particularly for X-rays, gamma rays and neutrons, with applications to medical imaging and to non-destructive testing. We work collaboratively with the CRI's Industrial Research Limited, and Geological and Nuclear Sciences.
