Conor recently completed a Bsc(Hons) in physics with nuclear technology at the University of the West of Scotland. His PhD project focuses on studying Auger electrons for use in targeted cancer therapy. During his undergraduate degree at UWS, the final project was on measuring the lifetime of excited states in radium-224 and lead-208 using fast-timing detectors.
After graduating he recently started a PhD within the Nuclear Futures Institute as part of the EPSRC Nuclear Futures CDT where my project is studying auger electrons in targeted cancer therapy with an interest in the production of viable auger emitting radionuclides. The project is sponsored by Drapers and supervised by Dr Lee Evitts, lecturer in Nuclear Medicine and Dr Eric Aboagye at Imperial College London.
