Pierre is originally from Québec, Canada. After completing his PhD in Cornell University he was researcher at PSI (Switzerland), at TUM (Germany), then lecturer at UCL and associate professor at the University of Southampton.. He is now full professor at the University of Trieste, working on the development of high-resolution X-ray imaging techniques. Most of Pierre’s research work has been supported by the European Research Council, first with the starting grant “OptImaX” (2011-2017) and since 2020 with the consolidator grant “S-BaXIT”.

Sara is originally from Pula, Croatia. She completed a BSc in Physics (2018) and MSc in Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics (2020) at the University of Trieste, Italy. She worked on the evaluation of quality parameters in phase-contrast tomography during an internship at Elettra Synchrotron, Trieste. Her master’s thesis was on a Monte-Carlo simulation of a medical linear accelerator in Geant4.
Sara started her PhD on speckle-based X-ray imaging and tomography in November 2020, focusing on dark-field imaging in biomedical applications.

Ginevra is originally from Castel Gandolfo, Italy. She completed a bachelor’s degree in Physics (2019) and a master’s degree in Condensed Matter Physics (2021) at the University of Trieste, Italy. Her master’s degree thesis was focused on the development and the characterization of a synchrotron-based spectral K-Edge Subtraction imaging setup based on bent Laue crystals. Her thesis work has been developed in the context of the KISS (K-Edge Imaging at Synchrotron Sources) project, supported by the INFN.
Ginevra joined the S-BaXIT project as a PhD student in November 2021. Her main interest is the development of a micro-CT setup for directional dark-field applications.
Marco was born in Parma, Italy, where he completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics in 2019. After this, he took the Master’s Degree in Astrophysics and Cosmology in Padova, which he concluded in 2021. His research field and thesis topic were extrasolar planets. Near the end of his Master’s however, he became interested in machine learning applications in physics and astrophysics research. After graduating, he started a PhD in the S-BaXIT project, where he focuses on the development of ptychographic image retrieval algorithms.
Bo is originally from Fuyang, China. He is a PhD student in the School of Physical Science and Technology at ShanghaiTech University, China. He has been focusing on X-ray ptychographic tomography and XFEL single-particle imaging since 2018. Bo joined the S-BaXIT project as a visiting student in August 2023, where he is exploring speckle-based imaging and near-field ptychography.
