Luca C. Stockhausen was born in 1990 in Cologne, Germany. After successfully completing his Abitur in 2008, he studied Physics at the University of Liverpool and attained his Master’s degree in July 2012. In his Master’s thesis he conducted a feasibility study of an imaging system during non-invasive radiotherapy.

Shortly after Luca joined the LA³NET network and has been working on laser-driven ion acceleration as a Fellow at CLPU in Spain under the supervision of Ricardo Torres and Enrique Conejero. In parallel he has been enrolled into the PhD programme of the University of Salamanca. Within his project Luca has been working internationally in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde, experimentally several months at large-scale research facilities in the UK and carried out computer simulations at the Instituto Superior Tecnico in Lisbon. He presented his LA³NET-related results at various international conferences and workshops.
