The Board

For the establishment phase of the SWE-RAYS network, a steering committee was appointed  at the first national workshop in August 2012. In december the same year this steering committee officcially formed the association, accepted the bylaws, and was elected as the first board of the association. Now, the board is elected for two years at an annual meeting. Any member can nominate themselves or a colleague.

Mikael Elvborn (Chairman)

Deptartment of Clinical Sciences, Radiation Physics, University of Gothenburg

Charlotte Andersson (Vice chairman)

Deptartment of Clinical Sciences, Radiation Physics, University of Gothenburg.

PhD student in radiobiology, optimization of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy.

Lovisa Waldner (Secretary)

Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Malmö at Lund University.

PhD student in medical radiation physics with focus on OSL dosimetry using household salt.

Milagrosa López Riego (Treasurer)

Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute (MBW), Stockholm University

PhD student in the field of radiation biology, focusing on the genetic and epigenetic changes in human cells after exposure to low doses (LD) and low dose rates (LDR) of varying qualities of radiation and the search for a biomarker of radiation exposure. Ultimately, aiming to obtain a better quantification of LDLDR ionizing radiation-induced cancer risk and contribution to radiation protection.

Antanas Bukartas (Webmaster)

Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Malmö at Lund University

PhD student in the field of mobile gamma spectrometry and radiation protection. Working on developing a novel Bayesian based orphan source search method for mobile gamma spectrometry systems.

Pamela Akuwudike (Board member)

Department of Molecular Biosciences, the Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

PhD student working on determining the risks of developing second malignant neoplasms (SMN).
