X40 Following the Electrons: Simulation for High-Resolution STEM and CBEDs

Mark P. Oxley, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Mark Oxley is a research scientist in the Materials Science and Technology Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His expertise is the simulation and quantification of scanning transmission electron microscopy images and spectroscopy. He is also working on the accurate simulation of 4D STEM data sets to be used as training sets for deep learning algorithms.

X41 Entrepreneurship in the Microscopy Community

Daniel Masiel, Integrated Dynamic Electron Solutions

Dan founded Integrated Dynamic Electron Solutions (IDES) fresh out of grad school. IDES allows researchers to illuminate nanoscale dynamics with its line of time-resolved imaging products spanning femtosecond to millisecond time scales.

X42 Efficient Phase Contrast Imaging via Electron Ptychography

Timothy J. Pennycook, Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Germany

Timothy Pennycook is a Scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research. His research focuses on developing methods to extract the maximum information out of samples, including using dose efficient 4D STEM methods such as ptychography to see beam sensitive materials more clearly before they are destroyed. He programmed the first implementation of single side band ptychography which has now evolved into ptychoSTEM, a free and open source package for performing ptychography.



X43 Expanding the Computational Toolbox for CryoEM

Alberto Bartesaghi, Duke University

Alberto Bartesaghi, PhD is currently an Associate Professor of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Biochemistry. He pushed the resolution of cryoEM protein structure determination during his tenure as a post-doctoral fellow and staff scientist at the National Cancer Institute in the Sriram Subramaniam lab.

X44 High-End Data Collection for Single-Particle Cryo-EM

Felix Weis, The European Molecular Biology Laboratory - Heidelburg, Germany

Felix Weis joined EMBL Heidelberg in April 2017. He is a cryo-EM support scientist taking care of the EMBL platform, providing help, training and support to internal users as well as to external visitors of the facility. His research interests cover many aspects of cryo-EM, including sample preparation, imaging and processing.
