Congratulations, Hadley DeBrosse! PhD Spring 2024

Congratulations to Hadley DeBrosse (La Riviere Lab) who successfully defended her PhD on April 16, 2024.

Hadley’s thesis is titled: “Metal Mapping with X-Ray Fluorescence Emission Tomography". 

Hadley joined the University of Chicago in 2019, after graduating with a BS in Physics from the University of Dayton. During her time at UD and afterward, she worked on the optimization of a new plasmonic material, Titanium Nitride, with the Air Force Research Laboratory.

In the GPMP she worked with Dr. La Rivière on the development of imaging geometries and reconstruction algorithms for metal mapping with a new X-ray fluorescence emission tomography (XFET) system. Beyond her research, she enjoyed learning about clinical diagnostic medical physics through coursework, practicums, and clinical shadowing.

Dr. DeBrosse will go on to Ohio State's medical physics residency in imaging. Great work!
