  • Introduced himself to everybody.


  • Off sick with the man flu.
  • Managed to run a reconstruction using data from Geant4 simulation.
  • Currently investigating how similar the images are to the reconstructions obtained using Gate.
  • Working on implementing a multi-threaded run manager in my simulation.


  • Working on Literature Review.
  • To Do:
    • Will send draft to SJ 18/10/18.
    • Literature review due in 22nd October.


  • Working on Literature Review.
  • Draft copy sent to SJ for review: SJ promises he will send back comments today...
  • Held Skype meeting with Tony Price:
    • Possible visit to Birmingham cyclotron 25/26 October.
    • TP to advise on possibility of visit and cyclotron availability.
    • Measure energy spectrum of beam.
    • TP will make Bragg peak measurement before we start.
  • To Do:
    • Literature review due in 22nd October.
    • Speak to Ruben Saakyan and Anastasia Basharina-Freshville about setting up PMT, particularly self-trigger threshold.
