My general research interest is in industrial and medical radiation and radioisotope measurement applications. The general approach taken has been to develop detailed models (most often by Monte Carlo simulation), benchmark them with experimental data, and then use them for calibration or interpretation and optimum equipment design purposes. The areas of interest include the optimum design and use of short-lived radioisotope tracers for unit processes, nuclear gauges, nuclear analyzers, nuclear oil well logging devices and computed tomography devices. Stemming from this research there has been an undergraduate text publication and the Center for Engineering Applications of Radioisotopes has been established.
