I'M ORIGINALLY FROM...
WHY I APPLIED TO THE SECURITY SCIENCE DTC
After working for 2 years in industry, I wanted to further my academic career, whilst keeping a security science focus. The DTC allowed me to do this whilst providing me with the necessary multidisciplinary skills to become an effective security scientist.
I am interested in radiation imaging and detection for border security. In particular transmission and backscatter X-Ray imaging techniques to screen cargo containers and other vehicles, as well as detecting radiological and nuclear weapons.
For my MRes project I shall be investigating whether we can apply Time-of-Flight techniques to X-Ray backscatter imaging to provide a 3D image.
WHAT I DO WHEN I'M NOT STUDYING
I enjoy going to the gym, running, playing guitar and walking round new areas of London.
MY CAREER ASPIRATIONS
I would like to continue working on innovative security solutions from a Physics and Mathematics persepective.
WHAT KIND OF PARTNER ORGANISATION I'D LIKE TO WORK WITH AND WHAT I'D LIKE FROM THEM
I would like to work with any organisation that share the same research interests as me in a collaboration that is mutually beneficial.
