Manuel Guizar-Sicairos appointed as Associate Professor at EPF Lausanne and head of the Computational X-ray Imaging group at PSI
The Board of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology has announced the appointment of Dr. Manuel Guizar-Sicairos, currently Senior Scientist at PSI, as Associate Professor of Physics in the School of Basic Sciences (SB), Institute of Physics (IPHYS), EPF Lausanne. Manuel will start this appointment in January 2023 and head the newly formed Computational X-ray Imaging group in PSI. His research focuses on developing methods and algorithms for computational imaging for the next generation X-ray sources. In particular ptychography, nanotomography, and hyperdimensional imaging such as vector, tensor, or spectral tomography. His appointment will further strengthen connections and foster collaborations around development of imaging capabilities between EPFL and the large-scale facilities at PSI.
Manuel has been twice co-recipient of the Innovation Award on Synchrotron Radiation for 2014 and 2020. He was awarded the prestigious 2019 ICO Prize by the International Commission for Optics and was elected as an Optica Fellow in 2021 and SPIE Fellow in 2022.
