Christophe GUILLAUME

En résumé

I spent 10 years at the University of Edinburgh as a researcher (including PhD).
Working as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in a world class laboratory (CSEC/ School of Physics) and at national research facilities, mainly synchrotrons, in France, UK, Germany and USA, I also did collaborative work with other laboratories across the world (UK, France, Germany, Italy and USA).
Since 2013, I am working as application scientist at Almax easyLab where my task is to develop new products and to improve the existing ones. An important part of my task involves going to customers' laboratories across the globe for installation and training. I also take an active part in the customer support who need technical assistance (via video conference). I also have an active role in writing customer userguides and marketing brochures about the company products.
