Dr Sarah Bugby completed her PhD in 2015 at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Leicester. Sarah then spent several years as a postdoctoral researcher, focusing on portable medical gamma imaging, detection of dual gamma-NIR tracers for cancer imaging and XRF imaging. Over this time, she has been able to take a new medical imaging device from bench testing to clinical pilot studies and now to commercial development. In 2018, Sarah became an STFC Innovation fellow within the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Leicester with a remit to translate core STFC-funded research in detectors and imaging systems to interdisciplinary areas. She is an elected member of the IOP Medical Physics Group committee.
Sarah's current research interests include intraoperative imaging, preclinical imaging techniques, semiconductor detectors for medical imaging and environmental monitoring.
