Sangeeta Murugkar, PhD
Dr. Sangeeta Murugkar is an Associate Professor in the Medical Physics Group in the Department of Physics at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
Prior to joining the faculty at Carleton University in 2013, Sangeeta was a Senior Scientist in the CERC Research Program in Quantum Nonlinear Optics led by Prof. Robert Boyd at the University of Ottawa for two and a half years. Preceding this appointment, she was a Research Associate in Biophotonics in Prof. Hanan Anis’s group in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Ottawa for five years. She worked as a Research Scientist in the telecommunications and the environment industry in Ottawa for five years before joining University of Ottawa.
Sangeeta has a PhD in Physics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Post-doctoral experience in Engineering Physics at McMaster University. Her undergraduate degree in Physics from the University of Bombay (Mumbai), India was followed by a MSc degree in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur.
The Research Team
Harry completing a MSc in Medical Physics in August 2018 and started as a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering in the CBRG. His MSc research involved the application of Raman spectroscopy to investigate the effects of ionizing radiation on human lens epithelial cells. His PhD research involves the construction of a multimodal coherent Raman imaging exoscope. He has previously completed a BSc in Mathematics and Physics at Carleton University and enjoys learning new things.
Olivia is working towards her MSc in Medical Physics since September 2018 after successfully completing a summer internship as an NSERC USRA in the CBRG. Olivia’s research work involves the construction of a multimodal coherent Raman imaging platform. She completed a BSc. in Physics with Honours at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Outside of physics, Olivia has a passion for the study of history and also enjoys making use of Ottawa’s beautiful cycling paths.
Ben is in the final year of the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Physics program, Astrophysics stream, with a Minor in Mathematics. His Honours research project in the CBRG involves the development of a flow cell-based Raman spectroscopy technique for radiation dosimetry in human blood. Ben is currently the President of Carleton's Science Society, and has previously served as the President of the Physics Society and Co-Chair of the 53rd Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference in 2017 at Carleton University. His interests include space exploration, photography, and urban design. In his free time, he enjoys cycling, swing dancing, and reading.
