Background

William Butcher graduated from the University of Leicester with a Masters Degree in Physics with a year in Industry in July 2022. His BSc project focused on analysis techniques and the viability of using X-ray CT scanning for the 2020 Mars Sample Return mission. His MPhys looked at whether upper tropospheric humidity (UTH) was accurately represented in climate reanalysis when compared with satellite climate data records (CDRs), specifically within El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) regions, in order to better inform future climate projections.

William started his PhD with the University of Liverpool and joined the QUASAR Group in October 2022. His topic focuses on the design and commissioning of a supersonic gas jet based beam profile monitor, for application in proton and hadron beam therapy used in cancer treatment.
