People of Imaging

Many thanks to all that have taken part in this project
  • An imaging scientist helps the users get the best out of the equipment to answer their question.

    Leandro Lemgruber Soares Imaging Technologist
    University of Glasgow
  • An imaging scientist is a bit of everything so like a biologist, chemist; you should be able to be a physicist, and you should understand computers. So is a bit of a chameleon.

    Marco Marcello Centre for Cell Imaging
    University of Liverpool
  • A good day at work is when I can sit with some users at the microscope, and they say 'wow' this is a good image.

    Andreas Bruckbauer Facility Manager
    Imperial College London
  • We do a lot of outreach work with schoolkids as well to show them how beautiful an image is. That's my passion.

    Tim Self Head of SLIM- School of Life Sciences Imaging Facility
    University or Nottingham
  • Probably the most important is making sure that things work and people have solutions available to them.

    Alex Sossick Head of Imaging Facility
    University of Cambridge
  • I think ultimately you are a scientist asking a question and you're using the facilities you have to do that.

    Laura Kilpatrick Postdoctoral Researcher
    University of Nottingham
  • Someone that can get the most out of the equipment and can work with people to work out what they want. Getting the best results possible from that sample.

    Stuart Micklethwaite Electron Microscopy Support Technician
    University of Leeds
  • So I'm training new PhD students making sure that they are getting sensible and useful data that would help them with their projects.

    Zabeada Aslam Research Officer
    University of Leeds
  • We're all scientists here whether you know someone's doing a PhD, postdoc or you're a technician.

    Seema Rajani Technician
    University of Nottingham
  • An imaging scientist is used to seeing things that no one else sees.

    Liam Dwyer Advanced Technologist
    NSG Group
  • An imaging scientist has excellent imaging and analytical skills. I think that analytical skills are as important as imaging skills.

    Tatsiana Molchan Advanced Technologist
    NSG Group
  • It's a great opportunity to learn new things because I have never worked with glass before. I have now been at NSG for about three years.

    Irina Gordovskaya Advanced technologist
    NSG Group
  • An imaging scientist is one comfortable with exposing themselves to new techniques and learning all the time.

    Mark Soave Postdoctoral Researcher
    University of Nottingham
