CLS gets its executive director

Bill Thomlinson, well known in the synchrotron radiation community, recently joined the Canadian Light Source as its Executive Director. He began his career in synchrotron radiation when he joined the newly established synchrotron department at Brookhaven in 1979. There he became Associate Chairman, responsible for the general welfare of the users community. He also established one of most significant medical activities on a synchrotron which eventually took him to the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble in January 1999 as head of the Medical Research Group. The challenge of establishing the Canadian Light Source as a major synchrotron radiation centre brought him back to the American continent. Bill started his scientific career as a physicist, having obtained his doctorate from Yale in 1970. His first post-doctoral assignment was at Cornell, and later at Julich.[link]
