Logan Montgomery is a PhD candidate in the Department of Physics at McGill University and a member of Dr. John Kildea’s Neutron-Induced Carcinogenic Effects (NICE) team. Logan is currently finishing a project wherein he used Monte Carlo methods to analyze neutron-induced DNA damage in order to better understand the biophysical mechanisms underlying radiation-induced carcinogenesis. His previous projects as a member of the NICE-ROKS team include: (i) Development of a novel open-source algorithm for unfolding neutron spectra obtained using the Nested Neutron Spectrometer (NNS). (ii) Comparison of the neutron spectra generated by flattening-filter-free (FFF) radiotherapy beams with conventional flattened beams using the NNS. (iii) Development of an open-source incident learning system called SaILS to enable clinical staff to report and analyze radiotherapy incidents and prevent their recurrence.
