David-Alexandru Serban

Since September 2020 I have been a postgraduate researcher within the Coherent X-ray Science group, Physics and Astronomy, Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, University of Southampton, in combination with Diamond Light Source on beamline I16.

Prior to this, I studied physics at the University of Southampton and in my Master's degree I studied Bragg Coherent X-ray Diffraction Imaging of VO2 nanocrystals under the supervision of Dr Marcus Newton.

My current research concerns mainly the imaging of Li-based battery materials using Bragg Coherent X-ray Diffraction Imaging. Additionally, I am improving my programming skills for both further phasing algorithms implementation and my passion for robotics.
