Dr Antigoni Kalamara holds diploma (5 year-degree, BSc plus MSc equivalent) in Applied Physics (2011) and MSc in Physics and Technological Applications (2014) from the School of Applied Mathematical & Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). She completed her PhD studies in the field of Nuclear Physics at the Department of Physics of the NTUA in 2019 and the title of her PhD thesis is «Neutron induced reactions on Ir and Au and production of isomeric states». Her research activities are focused on nuclear reaction cross section measurements, Monte Carlo simulations and theoretical calculations. She has attended 4 European Schools, 2 International and 9 National Conferences. She has participated in 3 funded research projects and she has performed experiments at European (PSI, Villigen, Switzerland and TSL, Uppsala, Sweden) and National (NCSR «Demokritos», Athens) research centers. She has received an IKY scholarship programme (2017-2018) and 3 NTUA Thomaides Awards (2016, 2017, 2018). She is a member of the Hellenic Nuclear Physics Society since 2012 and she has joined several reviewing calls (Nuclear Physics and Atomic Energy Journal, Modern Physics Letters A, Chinese Physics C, Applied Radiation and Isotopes). Her record includes 20 publications in International Peer Reviewed Scientific Journals, 20 publications in International Conference Proceedings and 32 papers in National Conference Proceedings. Currently, she works as a Post-Doc researcher at NCSR “Demokritos” in the Greek team for the FRINGE project. The latter is a European Collaboration investigating a new neutron cancer therapy. Three Institutes of NCSRD are involved in the FRINGE project, namely the: 

  • Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (INN)
  • Institute of Nuclear & Radiological Sciences & Technology, Energy & Safety (INRASTES)
  • Institute of Nuclear & Particle Physics (INPP)

Dr Antigoni Kalamara, in the framework of the FRINGE project, performs neutron irradiations, fluorescence detection, Monte-Carlo simulations and data analysis.
