Keerthana Kamalakannan won the best talk award at the Fifth International Conference on Application of RadiotraCers and Energetic Beams in Sciences (ARCEBS-2023) held January 31-February 5 in Purulia, India.
This award was given to her for her talk entitled “Developement of a time-of-flight mass spectrometer with a laser desorption/ionization source”.

PhD student in the Subatech laboratory, Keerthana leads since 2020 a PhD funded by the GIP ARRONAX. Her work is part of the SMILES project (Séparation en Masse couplée à l’Ionisation Laser pour des applications Environnementales et en Santé) and specifically aim to design and develop a time-of-flight mass spectrometer (TOF-MS) with a laser desorption-ionization (LDI) ion source.

Keerthana will defend her PhD in December 2023.
