Dr Gozzo has more than 25 years of practical experience with synchrotron facilities, in developing complex instrumentation and using it for the study of pharmaceuticals, pigments, food components, concrete and semiconductors. At the Paul Scherrer Institute, she has contributed to the growth of the Swiss Light Source synchrotron facility where she has developed for more than 10 years a state-of-the-art powder diffractometer, recently acknowledged in several scientific publications as one of the best ones in the world. Dr Gozzo has built there a substantial industrial and academic user community, including some large pharmaceutical companies. She is recognized as a synchrotron- and powder diffraction expert and as such, is regularly invited at the international level as a speaker, lecturer and scientific advisor. She is author and co-author of more than 80 scientific articles and book chapters. More on Linkedin.

 

 

 

 

Pamela Whitfield, PhD

 

Leading scientist
Excelsus Structural Solutions (Swiss) AG

pamela.whitfield@excels.us

  • B.Sc. in Chemistry, University of York, UK
  • M.Sc. in New Materials, University of Aberdeen, UK
  • Ph.D. in Materials Chemistry, University of Birmingham, UK
  • Postdoctoral Fellow, National Research Council Canada, Ottawa, Canada
  • Assistant/Associate/Senior Research Officer, National Research Council Canada, Ottawa, Canada
  • Instrument Scientist, Spallation Neutron Source, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA
  • Chemist/Materials Scientist, Excelsus Structural Solutions (Swiss) AG, Villigen, Switzerland

Dr Whitfield has over 25 years of practical experience with powder diffraction using both X-rays (laboratory and synchrotron) and neutrons (constant wavelength and time-of- flight). She developed and managed the largest XRPD facility at the National Research Council, supporting groups across Canada, developing custom sample environments and new analytical methodologies with samples ranging from battery materials and cements, to polymers and organic molecules. Later she was an instrument scientist on the POWGEN time-of- flight neutron powder diffractometer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA.

Dr Whitfield is known internationally as an expert in powder diffraction techniques and instrumentation. She has served on numerous national and international bodies, including as chair of the International Union of Crystallography Commission on Powder Diffraction for 9 years. She is a frequent instructor at schools and workshops, and regularly invited to present at international meetings. She is author and co-author of more than 80 scientific publications.

 

 

 

Mathilde Reinle-Schmitt, PhD

 

Scientist
Excelsus Structural Solutions (Swiss) AG

 

m.reinle-schmitt@excels.us

o M. S. in Physics, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland
o Ph.D. in Experimental Physics, University of Zurich and Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen, Switzerland
o Postdoctoral fellow, Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen, Switzerland
o Scientist, Excelsus Structural Solutions (Swiss) AG, Villigen, Switzerland

Dr Reinle-Schmitt has more than 5 years of practical experience with synchrotron radiation instrumentation and technique, particularly in the field of powder and surface diffraction. She is involved in the development of methods and measurement strategies mostly related to quantitative phase analysis and pair distribution function measurements of pharmaceuticals via synchrotron-radiation x-ray powder diffraction.
During her postdoctoral appointment at the Swiss Light Source Materials Science beamline she contributed to the automatization of the powder diffraction endstation by programming a graphical user interface that allows one to execute a variety of remote controlled measurements. At Excelsus, besides her everyday involvement in several industrial projects in collaboration with Excelsus' customers, Dr Reinle-Schmitt contributes at several long term R&D projects. She is also the radiation safety reference person as well as responsible for the quality management system in place at Excelsus Stuctural Solutions. More on Linkedin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ruggero Frison, PhD

 

Scientist

Excelsus Structural Solutions SPRL

 

ruggero.frison@excels.us

 

 

 

  • M.S. in Physics, Università degli Studi di Padova, Padova, Italy
  • Ph.D. in Materials Science, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ), Zurich, Switzerland
  • Postdoctoral researcher, Istituto di Cristallografia, National Council for Research, Italy
  • Postdoctoral researcher, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
  • Joint position at the University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland and at Excelsus Structural Solutions SPRL

Dr Frison has more than 5 years of experience in the development of total scattering methods in both reciprocal (i.e. Debye scattering equation) and real (i.e. Pair Distribution Function) space and its applications to nano-crystalline and disordered materials. His experience includes software development. Specifically, Dr Frison has contributed to the development of DEBUSSY ideated in 2009 by Dr Antonio Cervellino (Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland) and Dr Antonella Guagliardi (Centro Nazionale Ricerche, Italy). Present research activities at the University of Zurich include measurements and analysis of disorder and diffuse scattering in single crystals as well as software development.

 

At Excelsus Structural Solutions, Dr Frison is responsible for the development of the EUROSTARS AmorphPharma Project in collaboration with the companies NanoMegas in Brussels and BoRAS in Norwey. More on Linkedin.
