AMD boosts Advisory Panel with the addition of world leading academic
AMD is excited to announce that with immediate effect Professor Paul Sellin will join the academic membership of its Advisory Panel.
Paul Sellin received his PhD in Nuclear Physics from University of Edinburgh (UK) in 1992 in the field of semiconductor nuclear detectors.
Paul’s current research interests at the University of Surrey include the development and characterisation of radiation detectors and detector materials for applications in nuclear physics, medical imaging, and security detection. His research group focuses on the characterisation and development of new detector materials, including plastic and organic scintillators for mixed field neutron/gamma detection, including digital instrumentation and SiPM readout for neutron/gamma sensitive scintillators.
John Lee, CEO of AMD, said: "I am absolutely delighted to have another academic of Paul’s calibre join AMD to support our work across fields of sensing imaging and detection systems. Paul already provides support on our work programme under the Future Leaders Fellowship fund and has worked closely with our Chief Scientific Officer Dr Izabela Jurewicz for several years. This addition will dramatically ramp our capability in these important areas.”
Professor Sellin said: "I’m looking forward to working with AMD in the exciting area of nanomaterial sensors. Our mutual interest in developing nanomaterials for applications in radiation sensing is a fast-developing area of research, with many exciting organic and nanoparticle materials showing great potential for radiation detection applications in application areas such as medical and security imaging.”
