  • Research Video
  • My PhD project involves the design and development of an accurate real-time tissue equivalent proportional counter based on a THick Gas Electron Multiplier (THGEM) for surveying and monitoring unknown neutron-gamma radiation fields for radiation protection purposes. The prototype detector is successfully developed and gives a measure of biological effects of ionizing radiation in tissue by measuring energy deposition along the particle tracks. After optimization, this novel high efficiency microdosimetric detector can be used for neutron dose equivalent measurements at nuclear power plants and other neutron facilities.

  • Scientific Interests

    My research interests are: Development of novel detection systems, radiation protection and radiation spectrometry, microdosimetry, Monte Carlo studies, radiation therapy physics, proton therapy, cancer research.

    I am interested in particle physics experiments, and the development of neural networks for data sciences.
