Matthew Dimmock completed his PhD in Nuclear Physics at the University of Liverpool in 2008. After accepting a post-doctoral position with Monash University in 2009 he led the PEDRO project which combined Compton and pinhole collimation techniques to develop a hybrid small animal imaging device. Matthew then went on to accept his second post-doctoral appointment at the Australian Synchrotron. There he worked on improving the hardware and software capabilities for readout of semiconductor detectors on the X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy beam-line. He also worked on Monte-Carlo simulations of the X-ray Fluorescence Microprobe and Imaging and Medical beam-lines. In 2014 Matthew accepted the position of lecturer in the Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences.
Matthew’s primary passions are research and lecturing in the theory and applications of medical imaging. As well as publishing peer reviewed work in international journals, he has also written general interest articles on medical imaging for The Conversation news website and an educational App on nuclear physics for school children through MWorld.
Matthew’s expertise are, Monte-Carlo modelling of radiation detectors, image and signal processing algorithms and the development of semiconductor technology for radiation detection devices.
Many of Matthew’s publications can be obtained through the ResearchGate interface.
