Dr Catarina Veiga, Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow at University College London
I acquired BSc in Physics at University of Minho (Braga, Portugal), and an MSc in Medical Physics at University of Porto (Porto, Portugal). I have then obtained my PhD in 2016 in Medical Physics at University College London (London, UK). My project consisted of using CBCT to evaluate the need for treatment adaptation in head & neck and lung patients, both for IMRT and proton therapy. After my PhD I have worked at UCL as research associate developing image analysis tools for radiation-induced lung damage. I have recently been awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship to develop novel methods to study and predict late effects of radiation in childhood cancer survivors. My research interests are in the use of imaging to improve radiotherapy delivery, namely for applications in proton therapy, treatment planning and adaptation, and minimising side-effects of curative radiation.
