IONHE - Ionising Radiation, Health and Environment

Research Lines

  • Dosimetry and Radiation Protection: Measurement and modeling of ionizing radiations exposure for patients and workers (Duch et al., 2017; Carinou et al., 2019);
  • Medical Radiophysics: Theoretical description of the ionizing radiation transport process by Monte Carlo simulation. Applications in medical physics, both in radiotherapy and medical imaging (Sempau et al., 2011).
  • Metrology for Environmental Radioactivity: Measurements and modeling of radioisotopes activity concentration in different environmental matrixes for radiation protection aims (Mulas et al., 2019). Application of airborne radiation detectors carried by unmanned aerial systems (commonly named drones) for mapping radioactivity and source localization (Royo et al., 2018; watch the video). Tracers applications for climate and atmospheric processes (Grossi et al., 2018, Grossi et al., 2020).
  • Computational Modeling of Materials: This research area involves computational multiscale modeling of elastic, inelastic and fracturing behavior of engineering materials including ceramics, metals, cementitious materials, fiber reinforced polymer composites, particulate composites and both biological soft and hard tissue (Caner, et al. 2019; Caner et al., 2017).
