Published on

Two more students of the QUASAR Group from the first LIV.DAT cohort have successfully defended their theses and gained their PhDs

Dr Selina Dhinsey’s thesis was called “The Modelling and Analysis of Comet Assay Data”. The data she analysed was taken at Clatterbridge and used to assess the efficacy of proton therapy for cancer.

Selina was supervised by Professor Tim Greenshaw and Professor Carsten Welsch and has recently taken up the role of Data Coach with Multiverse, a London based company.

Dr Aravinda Perera successfully completed his PhD viva under external examiner Professor Stuart Mangles (Imperial College) and internal examiner Dr Eddie Paul.

Aravinda successfully developed advanced models of beam-plasma interaction with a focus on the AWAKE project at CERN and the properties of elliptical beams. His thesis was entitled “Seeded Self-Modulation of Elliptical Beams in Plasma Wakefields”

Aravinda was supervised by Drs Javier Resta-Lopez, Oznur Apsimon and Professor Carsten P Welsch.

Congratulations to Selina and Aravinda and we wish them the best of luck in the future!
