The LINXS project is currently led by an Executive Group with Staff, a Board, and a Scientific Advisory Board.
LINXS Director and Core Group leader for the Dynamics thematic. Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, Lund University since 2010, when he moved from the Adolphe Merkle Institute for Pure and Applied Nanoscience of the University of Fribourg, Switzerland.
LINXS Vice-Director and Core Group leader for the Imaging thematic. Associate professor at the Dept. of Solid Mechanics at the Faculty of Engineering (LTH), where he is also in charge of the 4D-Imaging Lab x-ray tomography facility. Came to Sweden in 2011 after moving from Laboratoire 3R in Grenoble, France.
LINXS Co-Director. Principal investigator and Docent (Eng. Reader or Associate Professor) in Medical Protein Science, Faculty of Medicine. Moved to Lund University in 2009 after postdoctoral training at University of California and at Sahlgrenska Academy.
The LINXS staff is currently brought in part-time on a need-to basis from various departments. As a rule the total active staff is equivalent to about two full-time positions.
Åsa helps in coordinating events and collaborative activities at LINXS. She has a deep background in research communication activities at LU, as the main responsible of Science Slam, Researcher tour, Researchers' Grand Prix and LU's activities in Almedalen, the main Swedish national political showcase and meeting of the year.
Farhad is a project assistant at the Department of Physical Chemistry working for the LINXS project. He has a background in nuclear science and over 10 years teaching experience in Physics and Mathematics at a university level. He has also been active in Nanoscience via a secondment.
Dean of the Faculty of Science and Professor in Inorganic Chemistry. Member of the Nobel Prize Committee for Chemistry since 2003 and its chair 2014-2016.
Senior advisor to the Vice-Chancellor of Umeå University for research infrastructure and Professor in plant biochemistry at UPSC. Member of the MAX IV & SciLife boards.
Tomas is the Life Science Director at the MAX IV synchrotron and represents MAX IV as a whole. He has had a long and prosperous career within structural biology and drug discovery.
Ulf Olsson represents the Faculty of Science at Lund University. He is a Professor of Physical Chemistry, with special interest in soft matter systems.
Antigen presentation Group Leader at Experimental Medical Science. Kajsa represents the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University.
Senior Advisor at the European Spallation Source ERIC and representing it in the Steering Committee. Research background in membrane proteins, bioenergetic systems, metals in biology and proton transfer.
Vice Dean at the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) at Lund University and representing LTH. Professor and leading scientist within the Aerosol Group at the Division of Nuclear Physics at Lund University.
Scientific Advisory Board
SAB CHAIR - AREA LIFE SCIENCES
Lise is a Professor and Head of the The Structural Biophysics Group
Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science, Denmark. Her main research topics include biophysics and physical chemistry with the main focus on structural investigations of macromolecules and their aggregates in solution.
SAB MEMBER - AREA HARD MATTER
Christiane is the Head of the Laboratoire Léon Brillouin (LLB). Her research focuses on the thermodynamics, structure and dynamics of molecular condensed phases, liquid, solid and amorphous. She is a leading expert in several experimental techniques and methods bridging the gap between time and space scales, improving theoretical concepts and analytical modelling.
SAB MEMBER - AREA SOFT MATTER
Stefan is a full professor (Soft Condensed Matter Physics) at the Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf. Interested in the physics of soft condensed matter, in particular its non-equilibrium behaviour. His research focuses on the behaviour of colloidal systems under external fields, their relaxation to equilibrium, and metastable states as well as flows of solvents and solutes through porous matrices.
SAB MEMBER - AREA SOFT MATTER
Daan is a former Head of the Department of Chemistry at Cambridge University and the current Director of Research. The Frenkel group focuses on the numerical exploration of routes to design novel, self-assembling structures and materials. In particular, the group is interested in the possibilities that bio-molecular recognition and motor action offer to create complex, nano-structured materials.
SAB MEMBER - TOPIC HARD MATTER
Christian is the Head of the Division for Research with Neutrons and Muons at the Paul Scherrer Institute and a Professor in the Department of Quantum Matter Physics of the University of Geneva. His research projects focus on systematic studies of strongly correlated quantum phenomena in low-dimensional spin systems, single-molecule and frustrated magnets, and novel emergent materials.
SAB MEMBER - TOPIC LIFE SCIENCES
Marco is the Head of the SLS Tomography group
and Professor for X-ray imaging at the ETH Zürich. With his team, he is working on novel X-ray based instruments and methods for non-invasive investigations of samples at various length scales, ranging from single cells up to humans. Research areas encompass a host of X-ray based imaging techniques for biosystems and clinical applications.
