Faruk has a bachelor degree in Engineering Physics and a MSc degree in Experimental Particle Physics. During his MSc he has worked for CERN ATLAS TRT group and was involved in software development as well as detector R&D efforts.
After completing his MSc, Faruk started his PhD at Ghent University and he has worked for ENVISION project which aims to develop novel imaging systems for hadrontherapy. Faruk is finishing his PhD at the Center for Advanced Radiation Technology (KVI-CART) of the University of Groningen. During his PhD, Faruk has been involved in Monte Carlo simulations of proton therapy and related TOF-PET-imaging. He participated in experiments related to proton therapy at the cyclotron facility of KVI-CART.
