Department: Nuclear Engineering
Concentration: Applied Nuclear Science and Radiation Detection
Hi! My name is Oscar Matousek, and after getting my bachelor’s here at UC Berkeley in Nuclear Engineering. During my undergraduate career, I became interested in the design of nuclear radiation detectors and imaging and interned at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to explore these fields. The value of the professional connections and hands-on teaching offered by Berkeley convinced me to come back to join the MEng program. I am now using the skills I learn in class to develop a proton cancer therapy verification imaging system.
Growing up in Valencia, Spain, I became a huge soccer fan, and I also enjoy hiking and surfing. If you’d like to connect to talk about the MEng program, or would just like to chat, reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
