Research

We are interested in new radiation detection and instrumentation for imaging and sensing applications. This includes the development of novel detector technology and imaging techniques, data processing, experimental validation, modelling, computational problem solving, and quantitative characterization of biological processes.

Molecular Imaging

Molecular imaging enables the visualization, characterization, and quantification of biological processes. In nuclear medicine, an instrumental molecular imaging modality is positron emission tomography (PET). We are interested in investigating different detection materials, readout strategies, and algorithms to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity  PET.

Modeling and Simulation for Nuclear Imaging

We use modeling for validating experimental measurements as well as exploring and evaluating new algorithms for data processing.

Optical and UV detectors

We are interested in optical detectors and flexible electronics for sensing applications. We would like to develop miniaturized systems for portable and wearable health solutions.

  

Mobile Sensor Networks for Nuclear Radiation Detection

We are working on the creation of a mobile sensor network for radiation detection. Through both simulation and experimental data, we hope to improve mapping of radiation sources with portable detection nodes.
