Welcome to RED²
The Radiological Engineering, Detection, and Dosimetry (RED²) Laboratory at Texas A&M University is led by Dr. Shaheen Dewji. The RED² Laboratory’s research focuses on harnessing both computational capabilities in Monte Carlo radiation transport modeling and experimental measurements using radiation detection for applications in radiation protection, dosimetry, health physics, and nuclear materials accounting.
Computational Dosimetry: Research activities include the development of dose coefficients using age/sex-specific anthropomorphic computational phantoms and radionuclide biokinetic models for occupational nuclear workers, members of the public, nuclear medicine, space, defense, and emergency response.
Radiation Detection: Research activities include the employment of validation and verification of gamma-ray spectroscopic detector responses for contaminated environmental media; field triage assessment of radiation uptake during nuclear, radiological, and fission product release events; and nuclear materials control, accounting, and safeguards of special nuclear material.
