Chris Milne has left PSI and the NCCR MUST to take up a position as Leading Scientist at the FXE Instrument at the European XFEL in Hamburg. His post-doc, funded with NCCR MUST funding, will stay and continue his project at PSI and SwissFEL.
Camila Bacellar, who has joined SwissFEL as a beamline scientist in September 2020, will take over the supervision of the post-doc and the responsibility for the project. After the Assembly meeting on 12.1.2021, the DC voted by email to appoint Camila as an NCCR MUST PI for the remainder of the project.

Camila received her Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of California - Berkeley, in 2017. Her Ph.D. work focused on the ultrafast dynamics of highly excited Helium nanodroplets, investigated via time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy using an high-harmonic generation source as well as probed by single-particle coherent diffractive imaging, at the LCLS. She moved to Switzerland for a post-doctoral position at the Laboratory of Ultrafast Spectroscopy at EPFL, where she utilized ultrafast x-rays techniques (XAS and XES) to investigate the structural and electronic dynamics of heme proteins in physiological media, at X-ray FEL facilities around the world. Since September 2020, she is an Instrument Scientist at the Alvra endstation at SwissFEL.
