I gave a presentation at the Joint Lab Model and Data Driven Material Characterization (JL-MDMC) workshop that took place between March 8-10, 2023 in Jülich.

It was an introduction to the new Electron Microscopy Data Science (EM-DS) lab jointly established by Materials Data Science and Informatics Institute (IAS-9) and Ernst Ruska-Centre (ER-C) for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons.

During the workshop, researchers from different Helmholtz Centers talked about correlative characterization, research metadata and reproducibility, and research data management. They presented their research on Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Scanning Transmision Electron Microscopy (STEM), Raman Spectroscopy, and nano Computed Tomography (nanoCT) among others.

There was also a lab tour organized for participants to visit the electron microscopes at the ER-C and learn about the workflows on sample preparation, imaging, data analysis and visualizations performed by ER-C scientists.

Participants also had time for networking and social events. A guided tour was organized at Jülich Citadel, a historical landmark in the city. The famous fortress was built in the 16th century and survived the destruction in World War II, even though the rest of Jülich was completely destroyed.

Overall, it was a great workshop where researchers shared their activities, had a chance to socialize and do networking, and discuss possible collaborations.
