Dr Frances Ross mmc2017 Plenary Speaker

The organisers of mmc2017 and EMAG 2017 are proud to confirm Dr Frances Ross as a keynote speaker at next year’s Congress

Dr Frances Ross received her BA in Physics and her PhD in Materials Science from the University of Cambridge and completed her postdoc at AT&T Bell Laboratories, using in situ electron microscopy to study oxidation of Si and dislocation motion in electronic devices. She then joined the National Centre for Electron Microscopy at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where she imaged anodic etching of Si and domain walls in ferroelectrics, as well as coordinating users of several of the microscopes. She then joined IBM in 1997, building a program around a TEM with in situ chemical vapour deposition, evaporation and focused ion beam capabilities, for which she developed a liquid cell, and a UHV mass-filtered focused ion beam/STM system. She has been a visiting Scientist at Lund University and an Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University. Her interests include liquid cell microscopy, epitaxy, nanowires, electrodeposition and thin film properties.

Dr Ross is well-known for the huge contributions she has made to the imaging of specimens in liquids using transmission electron microscopy, revolutionizing the direct observation of materials processes. We’re looking forward to hearing her speak at mmc2017 next year.

Previous events

mmc2017 is the latest in an impressive list of events dating back to the 1960s starting with the Micro conference and exhibition series. This later became MicroScience which grew ever-bigger until 2010. The RMS hosted the European Microscopy Congress in 2012 which was the catalyst for the current Microscience Microscopy Congress series.
