Nuclear security

We explore innovative methods to detect radiological and nuclear materials for nuclear security and environmental protection.

Our research interests

Our interests include:

  • Utilising music compact discs to detect radon
  • Underground animal burrow radiation measurements for environmental monitoring and treaty verification
  • Optimised sensor placement for radiological search
  • Quantum dot enhanced detection technology.
