Project and current work
My work within ARDENT is focused on the development and characterization of a new generation of ionization chambers arrays.This technology is aimed to radiotherapy applications, particularly to the measurement of absorbed dose from photon, electron and proton radiation.
Several detector prototypes will be tested and iteratively improved, performing experimental measurements at IBA facilities and simulations with Monte Carlo EGSnrc code. I will carry out my PhD program at the Technical University in Munich. Collaboration with TUM University will also include experimental sessions for evaluation of detector performances and practical applications of such technology in a clinical environment.
Participations in meetings, conferences, etc
