Dimitra Atri


I am a computational physicist working on various aspects of astroparticle physics, radiation biophysics, and astrobiology. Currently, I am working on the following projects:

  1. Modeling the impact of hard solar events and galactic cosmic rays on astronaut health in long-term space missions.

  2. Exploring the impact of particle interaction models tuned with LHC data on gamma-ray and neutrino production in our Galaxy.

  3. Modeling the background flux of protons, antiprotons, neutrinos and gamma-rays using updated particle interaction models with GALPROP (galprop.stanford.edu).

  4. Modeling the impact of high-energy astrophysical events on the Earth’s atmosphere (ionization) and biosphere (radiation dose).

Earlier, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai, India. Before that, I earned a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Kansas in May 2011.
