Linda Anuar currently works on simulations and experiment of a gamma source imaging method using compressed sensing principles. The assembly of this proof-of-concept system consists of a water-filled tank with an array of PVC pipes acting as the collimator and a group of six Geiger Muller detectors for measurements. This proposed system had been proven to be possible by using Monte Carlo N-Particle Transport Code (MCNP) simulations. Anuar is investigating whether these simulations can be verified through a physical experiment. This research is important as it provides an avenue to support radioactive source or nuclear material detection in nuclear security. Her research advisor is Dr. Craig Marianno.
Anuar received her Bachelor of Engineering from McMaster University, Canada in Engineering Physics (2011) and Master of Science in Nuclear Power Plant Engineering from KEPCO International Nuclear Graduate School, South Korea (2014). She worked as a lecturer at National Energy University (Universiti Tenaga Nasional), Malaysia in the Mechanical Engineering Department from 2014 to 2016 before joining the NSSPI family.
