Dr Bugby completed her PhD in 2015 at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Leicester. She then spent several years as a postdoctoral researcher, focusing on portable medical gamma imaging, detection of dual gamma-NIR tracers for cancer imaging and XRF imaging. In 2018, Sarah became an STFC Innovation fellow within the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Leicester with a remit to translate core STFC-funded research in detectors and imaging systems to interdisciplinary areas. Over this time, she has been able to take a new medical imaging device from bench testing to clinical pilot studies and now to commercial development.
She joined Loughborough University in September 2019 as a Lecturer in Physics and member of the Centre for Sensing and Imaging Science.
