My Research

My website is now at http://nicoleackerman.agnesscott.org/. This site is no longer updated.

I bring my simulation and hardware skills from particle physics to biomedical problems. Students are able to work with me on technology development and simulations.

Comparison of Cerenkov light between simulation and experiment This image shows one aspect of my research: trying to model, via a computer simulation, an experimental situation. This specific image represents the Cerenkov light produced by a quantity of fluorine-18 (FDG) in a small eppendorf tube.
