Adam Glick is a Ph.D. student in the nuclear engineering department at UC Berkeley. His research interests are neutron detection and dosimetry for particle cancer therapy. He has a B.S. degree in physics from Penn State University and a master’s in medical physics from The University of Pennsylvania. His master’s thesis was on neutron dosimetry for proton therapy treatments at the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine in Philadelphia. His current research is focused on neutron imaging and detection for natural radiation background measurements. This work is being done in collaboration with Sandia-Livermore and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories. Adam works under Professor Kai Vetter and is funded through ARI. After finishing his PhD, Adam plans on pursuing a residency position in Medical Physics and then a career as a Medical Physicist.
