Biographical details

Jungha Kim completed both Masters of Medical Physics and Graduate Diploma in Applied Nuclear Science degree at the University of Sydney. She has worked as a research assistant for a National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) project at the Institute of Medical Physics, School of Physics, at the University of Sydney. The project mainly involved computing simulations of high energy linear accelerator, which is used in current breast cancer radiotherapy treatment, using Monte Carlo simulation technique. Currently Jungha Kim is employed as a research associate for NHMRC funded project in clinical implementation of motion correction in PET/CT at Westmead Hospital.
