## Short presentation

My research deals with neutron-induced reactions, e.g. light ion production and fission. The experiments I take part in give knowledge about the physics of nuclear reactions but are also of use for applications. Applications can be found within dosimetry and medicine, in electronics research and in energy production. I am also actively taking part in an ion physics research project on 14-C studies. Isotope studies such as 14-C have great potential in biology, medicine and environmental research.
