  • Biography

    Dr. Messerschmidt studied chemistry and received his PhD from the crystallography department in 2004 at the Free University Berlin, Germany. He spent 2 years of postdoctoral studies at the University in Buffalo, NY working on time resolved diffraction experiments. He then joined DESY, Hamburg as a research scientist to participating in experimental design and early commissioning of the LCLS in Stanford from 2006 to 2009.
