Sheehy 200

Dr. Suzie Sheehy is an accelerator physicist and Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, UK. She leads research in high intensity hadron beams within the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science, where she also teaches graduate level accelerator physics. Her research uses a combination of theoretical, experimental and simulation-based approaches to address questions in beam dynamics and the design of future accelerators. Her career has led her to study accelerators for a range of applications from proton/ion therapy to accelerator driven nuclear waste transmutation. In addition to her research and teaching of graduate level accelerator physics, Dr. Sheehy is also an award winning science communicator and presenter, bringing physics to wider audiences through TV, radio, podcasts, major live shows and demonstration lectures.
