Phd Candidate, Physicist

Elena Ntalla is radiation physicist, PhD candidate and works at the Radioactive Waste and Materials Laboratory, in the Institute of Nuclear and Radiological Sciences & Technology and Energy and Safety in the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” since July 2015.

Her main research activity is the development of non-destructive methods concerning the radiological characterization of materials containing artificial radionuclides and TENORM (Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials) originating from Oil Industries. In the developing methods, experimental gamma spectrometry and computational Monte Carlo techniques for the radiation interaction simulation are combined.

She has a BSc in Faculty of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences of National Technical University of Athens (N.T.U.A) (2011), a MSc in Medical Physics – Radiation Physics in National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (2014) and Professional License to practice in Medical Physics – Radiation Physics in the field of Ionizing and non-Ionizing Radiation (2015). Her Doctoral Thesis will be supported by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Nuclear Technology Laboratory, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

She is main author or co-author in 2 papers published in peer reviewed international journals, 14 papers in international conferences and 4 scientific reports.
