Kowalska, Magdalena


Atomic and nuclear physicist by training. Came to CERN in 2002 to do a PhD for the University of Mainz about properties of short-lived isotopes at the ISOLDE facility. Since then, took different roles at ISOLDE: post-doc in mass measurements, ISOLDE physics coordinator, and now CERN research staff, with a stunt as a professor at UNIGE. Her biological and medical activities started in 2015 with an ERC Grant on applying radiation-detected nuclear magnetic resonance. Since then, she started two medical projects, devoted to gamma-detected magnetic resonance imaging with long-lived Xe isotopes and to beta-detected magnetic resonance with PET isotopes.
