Physics and Applied Physics

Professor Clayton French
Professor French is an international authority on internal radiation dosimetry and bioassay. He has published numerous books and book chapters on this topic. His current research interest includes dose assessment, metabolic modeling, nuclear medicine dosimetry and bioassay assessment. He earned his Ph.D. in Radiological Sciences at the University of Lowell.

Professor Erno Sajo
Professor Sajo's research group is active in radiation therapy, diagnostic imaging and colloid interface science. Their current focus is on nano particle transport and radiation dose computations at the micro- and nano-scales in charged particle disequilibrium. Application of this work ranges from Auger therapy to secondary cancer induction and extends to investigating the possibility of targeting biomolecules other than the DNA in cancer therapy. This also includes research on understanding the types of chromosomal and DNA damages, including the risk of heritable intragenic transmutations, caused by high vs. low linear energy transfer radiation.

Tries-Mark-tnAssociate Professor Mark Tries
Characterizes and explores applications of nuclear research reactors, with specific emphasis on applied health physics, radiation detection and measurement, and neutron radiography; collaborates on radiation biology and radio-mitigator investigations. Read Tries' full bio.

Yaroslavsky-Anna-tnAssociate Professor Anna Yaroslavsky
Researches optical methods for tissue characterization and pathology detection and treatment: studies light propagation in and interaction with biological tissues; develops wide-field high-resolution optical imaging methods and all-optical and multi-modal image-guided intervention techniques.
