Marina García-Cardosa, M.Sc.

Ph.D. Student

Member of the lab: December 2023 –

About me: I was born in Málaga, a city in the south of Spain. Since I was a teenager, I wanted to study something related to technology, physics and mathematics that could help improve people’s lives. I studied a BSc in Biomedical Engineering and a MSc in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Málaga. Finally, I started a PhD in Medical Physics which combines radiotherapy and fluid mechanics at the University of Navarra (Pamplona, Spain), and currently, I am doing a stay at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, US).

Research Interests: My research interests are focused on Medical Physics and Biophysics.  In my PhD, my research aims quantifying the dose received by the circulating blood of a specific patient during external radiotherapy treatment. Other lines of research that I am interested in are the modeling of biomedical systems that aid in clinical practice, immune response, radiopharmaceuticals and radiobiological effects.
