Dr Sam Blake is postdoctoral researcher with the Institute of Medical Physics at The University of Sydney. His area of expertise is in the development of novel radiation detectors for imaging and dosimetry applications in radiotherapy.
Specific skills include the application of Monte Carlo simulations to model radiation transport and to design, characterise and optimise the performance of electronic portal imaging devices in clinical radiotherapy environments; using clinical radiotherapy equipment to quantify dose response and image quality metrics for commercial and novel radiation detectors; use of commercial treatment planning software; software development and programming using C++, Matlab and Python languages.
