Dr Tomasz Wróbel, SOLAIR Research Line Manager, took part in the international campaign #LightSourceSelfie.
Scientists and engineers from 25 large-scale science facilities across the global light source community have contributed to a new video campaign to inspire and inform all those with a curiosity for careers connected to synchrotrons and Free Electron Lasers (FELs).
In his #LightSourceSelfie, Tomasz Wróbel talks about the importance of flexibility and how teams work together, adjusting to overcome challenges and get things done. When describing the synchrotron community, Tomasz says, “I think it is one of the most welcoming and friendly communities I have ever met.” Tomasz is driven by curiosity and the need to help others. He says, “Light sources are a nice combination of both because I can actually help people to solve their problems, their interesting scientific problems, and this gives me the everyday fulfilment.” After over a decade working in infrared spectroscopy, Tomasz is excited that SOLARIS now has funding to construct an infrared beamline that will allow scientists to do cutting edge infrared imaging experiments of cells and tissues primarily for cancer diagnostics and understanding of biological systems.
Lightsources.org is the result of a collaboration between communicators from light source facilities around the world. This platform groups 23 synchrotrons and 7 FEL facilities representing 24 organisations from 3 geographic zones: Europe / the Middle East, the Americas, and Asia / Australia.
