Frédéric Leroux, PhD


Frédéric Leroux completed his Master degree in Biology in 2007 at the University of Ghent where he gained experience in biological EM sample preparation. In 2008, he moved to the physics department at the University of Antwerp where he started his PhD. At the EMAT research group he specialized in advanced electron microscopy of composite materials. 2016, he joined Leica Microsystems as Application Specialist Nanotechnology EMEA.

He received his PhD in 2012. After 2 years as a postdoctoral researcher he became EM sample preparation specialist at EMAT. He thereby uses his multidisciplinary background and broad microscopy experience to improve EM sample preparation of a variety of materials (polymers, composites, biological and industrial materials).
