Professorial Inaugural Lecture Series: Professor Marco Endrizzi

Science & Technology

Join us to celebrate the achievements of Professor Marco Endrizzi who is undertaking research and scholarship of international significance.

Seeing through: my journey with X-rays for creating images and building new instruments


In this lecture I will talk about my academic journey, starting from when I developed a passion for X-ray imaging techniques, through becoming part of the Advanced X-ray Imaging group at UCL where phase contrast techniques have been pioneered and developed for nearly two decades, until now. Through a small collection of examples and short stories, I will show how this passion has provided me with the opportunity to learn about fundamentals of Optics and Radiation Physics, to travel around the world and to design and build unique instruments. I will conclude with an outlook of future directions, through the two main projects I am involved in at present, the National Research Facility for laboratory-based X-ray Computed Tomography and the new satellite group at the Francis Crick Institute.

The lecture will run from 17:30 - 18:30, with a drinks reception from 18:30 - 20:00. This event is open to the public, as well as all UCL staff and students.

This will be an in-person event and open to the public, if you are unable to attend the UCL campus on Wednesday 20th March, please register for the online stream via Zoom.

About Professor Marco Endrizzi

Marco graduated in Applied Physics from the University of Pisa in 2008 and obtained a PhD in Physics from the University of Siena in 2011. He moved to London in 2012 when he joined the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at University College London as a postdoctoral researcher.

He secured a Marie-Curie career integration grant in 2012 and a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship in 2015 that supported his activities on laboratory-based X-ray dark-field microscopy and microtomography. His contributions include a method, now UCL-proprietary, for X-ray dark-field imaging under incoherent illumination and hence suitable for laboratory settings as it is compatible with standard X-ray tubes. Since November 2020 Marco is co-Director of the National Research Facility for lab-based X-ray Computed Tomography (NXCT), and in September 2023 he joined The Francis Crick Institute as a satellite group leader.
