About:

Scientist interested in advanced synchrotron radiation techniques, including coherent diffraction techniques, x-ray diffraction, x-ray imaging and x-ray instrumentation. I have experience in SAXS, XRD, Micro- and Nano-tomography, ptychography, coherent diffraction in general and methods to solve protein structure including experimental and in silico approaches.
