Student Sessions

In the vast field of hadron therapy, building a community is essential. The student sessions provide an opportunity for participants to discuss among themselves, with a variety of different topics.

The sessions will be performed via SpatialChat, a virtual proximity-based video software which prioritises connectivity and group-discussions.

You can find the link for the SpatialChat environment here:

This room will remain open during coffee breaks and lunch breaks for participants to discuss.









Joseph Bateman
University of Oxford

I am a second year DPhil. student at the University of Oxford and currently on a one year placement at CERN. I am researching methods for real-time dosimetry and beam monitoring of Very High Energy Electrons at Ultra-High Dose Rates for FLASH.
Cameron Robertson
University of Oxford
I'm in my second year of my DPhil programme at the University of Oxford, currently on a one year attachment at CERN. My research is based on beam optics and foil systems for the design of treatment lines for future Very High Energy Electron therapy machines.
