Biography

Amy Renné is a first-year medical physics PhD student at the University of Chicago focusing her thesis work on Auger therapy and isotope production. Completing her bachelor’s degree at Stevens Institute of Technology in physics with a minor in mathematics, she transitioned to medical physics her senior year after working at Argonne National Laboratory as a virtual Lee Teng Fellowship intern. After the conclusion of this work, she was hired as a full-time research aide working primarily in Monte Carlo simulation problems for isotope production. Currently, her research interests are in the production, detection, dosimetry, and biological effects of Auger-emitting Terbium isotopes.
