Eric Simiele, PhD


Eric Simiele received his B.S. in health physics from Purdue University in 2013. He then obtained his master’s and PhD in medical physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015 and 2019, respectively. At the UW-Madison he worked at the University of Wisconsin Medical Radiation Research Center, which is partnered with the Accredited Dosimetry Calibration Laboratory, where he participated in multiple projects related to radiation dosimetry and metrology. His thesis work focused on characterizing the response of plastic scintillation detectors in the presence of a magnetic field through measurement and Monte Carlo simulation.

Eric joined the Stanford University Medical Physics Residency in 2019.
