Chelsea Dunning, PhD, has joined our group! Her graduate research was focused on building a table-top x-ray imaging system capable of simultaneous x-ray fluorescence computed tomography and photon-counting computed tomography imaging of high-atomic number contrast agents, which involved both Monte Carlo simulations and experiments for optimization. As a research fellow in the CT CIC, she […]
