Marie-Christine Zdora Wins Werner Meyer-Ilse prize
Marie-Christine joined Diamond in June 2015 after studying at Technische Universität München (Germany). Her PhD project (in collaboration with University College London) focuses on the development and implementation of techniques for X-ray phase-contrast imaging. Her research particularly focuses on X-ray speckle-based phase-contrast imaging. This method has recently attracted increased interest, as it combines high-sensitivity quantitative imaging with a simple experimental setup. Marie-Christine’s PhD project involves working on the development and improvement of the X-ray speckle-based technique, as well as demonstrating its applications e.g. for biomedical imaging. The first demonstration of the advanced mode of speckle-based imaging that Marie-Christine developed during her PhD project was published in Physical Review Letters last year (see related publications below).
