A portrait of Daniel Badali, a smiling man with glasses and a beard against a gray background.

Daniel Badali, PhD

Staff Scientist

Daniel Badali has a range of experience in imaging and diffraction techniques, in particular in using ultrafast electron diffraction to study transient dynamics in matter. In this research he specialized in the handling and characterization of thin films, processing large amounts of noisy image data, and algorithm development for reconstructing transient images from streaked diffraction patterns. In addition to the development of such complex experimental systems, he has worked extensively in mathematical modelling, laser science, and single-molecule biophysics. Daniel holds a B.Sc. in Biological Physics and Mathematics from the University of Toronto and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the University of Hamburg for work he did at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter
