Timothy DuBois is a Postdoctoral Researcher at Chalmers University of Technology with the Plasma Theory Group in Gothenburg, Sweden. Undertaking research as a part of the PLasma based ION Acceleration (PLIONA) Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation project, which will attempt to generate high acceleration laser-plasma based ion sources for near future use in applications such as hadron therapy for cancers, cosmic radiation studies on living cells and spacecraft, short-life medical isotope production, proton imaging and many other important applications. His doctorate was obtained at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia in September 2015 with the Chemical and Quantum Physics Group. That research focused on microscopic models of defects and quantum transport in condensed matter systems and large scale computer simulation using ab initio techniques. From August 2009 until September 2015 he also undertook contract work forthe Defence Science and Technology Organisation; specialising in statistical properties of lagrangian particles in application to the areas of turbulent dispersion, release characterisation and blast dynamics.
