Charlotte Roose

Charlotte Roose is born in Brussels, Belgium, in 1987. In 2008, she started engineering studies at the Institut Supérieur Industriel de Bruxelles (ISIB), Belgium. In 2011, she graduated of Bachelor’s in Technological Engineering. During her 3rd year, she made an internship at the Cyclotron Research Centre (CRC) at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL). During that internship, she worked with the accelerator department – the main subject was the implementation of quality control on the heavy ion line – and the radioprotection department – the main subject was the analysis of activated concrete samples.

In 2013, she graduated of Master´s in Physics and Nuclear Engineering at ISIB. For her Master’s thesis, she undertook an internship at the École Polytechique de Montréal, Canada. The subject was the verifying the cross sections libraries used for the calculation of a cell of a supercritical water reactor fueled with thorium. The transport calculation was made for various libraries with the deterministic code DRAGON, developed by the École Polytechnique de Montréal. The results were compared to results obtained with the Monte Carlo code SERPENT in order to deduce the libraries relevance.

Currently Charlotte is a Marie Curie Fellow at ESS within the oPAC project. Her research will focus on the development of non-invasive methods for measuring the beam profile in high intensity proton beams of the ESS accelerator.
