Gianluca Iori, BEATS beamline scientist in charge of coordinating the construction of the new tomography beamline at the SESAME synchrotron in Jordan, is visiting the ESRF for a 3-week training period on beamline construction and operation.
During Gianluca’s training, he will meet scientists, engineers and staff at the ESRF to gain insight into the complexities and technicalities of building a beamline, benefitting from the ESRF’s experience and exchanging work cultures, techniques and expertise.
Gianluca Iori is an Italian scientist with a background in both mechanical engineering and as a user of synchrotron radiation for research. One of his first roles as BEATS beamline scientist was to contribute to the writing of the Technical Design Report, which was submitted to the European Commission on 31st August 2020. He will also coordinate the construction of the beamline, as well as proposing and coordinating an in-house scientific programme in close collaboration with the BEATS partners and the SESAME Scientific Director.
