A novel hybrid microdosimeter for radiation field characterization based on the TEPC detector and LGADs tracker


Marta Missiaggia

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Trento working in the field of radiation physics. In collaboration with Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) and Trento Institute for Fundamental Physics and Applications (TIFPA) I am developing a new hybrid detector for microdosimetry application to better characterize the radiation field. This will allow a better radiobiological damage estimation with relevant implication both in radiotherapy and space radioprotection.

I am Enrico Pierobon, first year PhD student.  My interests are in the fields of applied physics, in particular applied nuclear physics, medical physics and advanced electronics. I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Trento and I am currently working on the continuation of my thesis in collaboration with TIFPA (Trento Institute for Fundamental Physics and Applications) and FBK (Fondazione Bruno Kessler) under the supervision of Prof. Chiara La Tessa. My work covers the development of a new hybrid detector to improve the description of the radiation field.In my spare time (which is converging to zero quickly) I play the flute, and I liked to swim.
