Roland Schnuerer obtained a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Medical Physics from the Heinrich Heine University of Düsseldorf, Germany. For his Master thesis, he investigated the inﬂuence of tissue heterogeneities on an in-vivo beam range veriﬁcation method for proton therapy with scanning beams at the Proton Therapy Center of the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, USA.
Roland joined the QUASAR group in 2016 as a PhD student of the University of Liverpool and is based at the Cockcroft institute. He will work on the development of an Online Beam Monitor Based on the LHCb VELO Detector. The research aims to optimize the use of medical accelerators for cancer treatment. The online beam monitoring is an essential part of patient’s safety and also assuring the high quality and efficacy of cancer treatment.
