  • Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences
  • Centre for Medical Radiation Physics

Overview


Dr Linh Tran is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Centre for Medical Radiation Physics (CMRP), University of Wollongong and is coordinating and leading research in the experimental microdosimetry. She received a bachelor and master degree in Physics at International University of Nature, Society and Man “Dubna” – Dubna, Russian Federation in 2008. Following this, she completed her PhD on Advanced semiconductor silicon detector for dosimetry and microdosimetry in radiation protection and hadron therapy at the CMRP, University of Wollongong.

Her research interests include development of semiconductor microdosimeters, relative biological effectiveness (RBE) in proton and heavy ion therapy, Boron Neutron Capture therapy (BNCT) and fast neutron therapy (FNT) as well as research on theoretical radiobiological models in hadron therapy and Monte-Carlo simulation for applications in aviation and space. Her group has been collaborating and carrying out experiments at a number of proton and heavy ion therapy centres including Heavy Ion Medical Accelerator in Chiba (HIMAC), Gunma University Heavy Ion Medical Centre (GHMC), Japan, The National Centre for Oncological Hadrontherapy (CNAO), Italy, Mayo Clinic, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), USA, IThemba Labs, South Africa, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), Netherlands.
