Research interests

DK: Jeg er fysiker med speciale i dosimetri. Mit fokusområde er tidsopløst dosimetri gennem brugen af scintillator-baserede detektorer. Jeg har været med til at udvikle et nyt detektorsystem, som i øjeblikket testes for behandlingsformerne brachyterapi, protonterapi samt røntgenterapi med lavenergetiske fotoner.

UK: I am a physicist working with dosimetry. My main focus is time-resolved dosimetry using scintillator based detectors. Currently, I am testing in-house developed and built detectors for brachytherapy, proton therapy and low-energy X-ray therapy.
