Intérêts de recherche

My research focus is the development of distributed data acquisition and real-time data processing systems for nuclear medical imaging and physics. I am currently exploring solutions that would enable time-of-flight positron emission tomography at timing resolutions reaching 10 ps, which will improve image quality and benefit medical research an clinical diagnostics. These systems are directly scalable and adaptable to experiments in high energy physics, astrophysics and quantum physics, allowing rich and meaningful collaborations between the fields.
