Nathalie is a PhD student who is conducting research using Two Broad Beam Multi-Detector Computed Tomography (CT) scanners and determining the methodology to characterize the shape and attenuation characteristics of bowtie filters. She will subsequently identify the energy spectrum to be able to characterize optically luminescent dosimeters (OSLDs) and acquire proper correction factors and measure the radiation dose of the system.

Nathalie was drawn to medical physics as a result of her strong desire to help others and her keen interest in science, physics, and mathematics.

Originally from Bolivia, Nathalie hopes to one day teach medical physics in an academic setting, especially to students in South America.

Nathalie enjoys yoga, bike rides, and going for runs. She also enjoys hanging out with friends and going to the movies.
