Ulrike Ankerhold is new TC-Chair for Ionising Radiation

Ulrike Ankerhold is the new chair of the Technical Committee for Ionising Radiation. Ulrike has taken over from Lena Johansson (formerly NPL, UK) who successfully chaired TC-IR from 2013 to 2016.

"As TC chair I would like to strengthen the interdisciplinary work and the collaboration with other TCs, organisations and non-metrology institutes to build networks beyond my TC. An important aspect is the discussion about the coherent approach of the metrology infrastructure, especially inionising radiation where complex facilities for the realisation and dissemination of measuring quantities are very expensive in purchasing and operation."

Ulrike has been head of the department for Dosimetry for Radiation Therapy and Diagnostic Radiology at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the German National Metrology Institute, since 2009. Ulrike obtained a PhD in Physics at the University of Bonn in Germany on molecular spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation. She joined PTB in 1997 and started working at the department for Radiation Protection Dosimetry.

Ulrike is a member of EURAMET's Task Group for Health and of several international and national standardisation groups in ISO, IEC and DIN.
