Achieve breakthroughs in ground-breaking research by electron microscopes
Fanis Grollios (31) works as a software technical lead at Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Materials & Structural Analysis division (formerly FEI Company). He is responsible for developing software for the electron microscopes the company produces.
His job requires a lot of knowhow, not only about software but also about the fields the microscopes are used in. In the end his goal is to help end-users achieve breakthroughs in their research so that societal challenges can be solved. “I am in the chain of something bigger.”
General understanding of electronics and physics
“In order to be able to programme the software for the microscopes I need to have a general understanding of electronics and physics as well. Physicists at PhD level used to be the primary users of our microscopes. As we are expanding to life science that means that more and more biologists use the microscopes as well.”
I am in the chain of something bigger
“What makes this job great is that there are people in life science that perform research in for instance breast cancer, the microscopes and our software help them achieve breakthroughs in their research. I am in the chain of something bigger. Our goal is much higher than merely developing software it is about solving societal challenges.”
