Pavel Kavrigin

Pavel Kavrigin received his Master’s degree at the Saint Petersburg State University of Russia (SPbSU) in 2011. His graduate research at the Department of Computational Physics was related to numerical simulations in particle and nuclear physics with applications in hadron therapy. The title of his Master's thesis was ‘Simulation of processes of interaction of charged particles with matter in hadrontherapy tasks’. Part of the research was also dedicated to the study of Cerenkov and Askaryan effects via simulation of charge distribution in liquid and gas media. Another important aspect of the research was high performance computing – parallel algorithms and distributed environments. The results of this work were presented in several publications and conference talks. Pavel also participated in SPRINT Lab (SPbSU-Intel) and conducted a series of lectures on high performance computing solutions of Intel Corporation.

Currently he is employed as a scientific researcher at CIVIDEC Instrumentation GmbH (Vienna, Austria) in the framework of the oPAC project. The topic of his research is ‘Development of a versatile beam loss monitor’. This topic covers theory of interaction of particles with matter and related simulations, principles of particle detecting technologies, data processing, design and construction of the detector as well as beam tests and experimental investigation of its performance. This research will be the main focus of his PhD thesis at Vienna University of Technology.
