ESR-Lodovico-Balducci-ColorLodovico Balducci holds a bachelors degree in Chemistry from the University of Pavia (IT) and obtained the Erasmus Mundus Master degree “Advanced Spectroscopy in chemistry” from University of Lille (FR) and from University of Leipzig (DE) gaining first experience on synchrotron radiation and data analysis.

At CNRS he will study different photoactive (bio)molecules following photoexcitation. Since beamtime at XFELs is precious and limited, preliminary studies will be done in the already existing fs laser lab and at third generation sources. The XFEL data analysis code will be developed within open source frameworks. Experiments of X-ray Absorption, scattering and diffraction will be performed.

Well done Lodovico!
