Louisa Smieska, a former Post-Doc at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS), explains how chemistry and art brought her to become a synchrotron scientist. For the past year, Louisa has been working with X-ray fluorescence to scan manuscripts from the Johnson Museum, mining deposits from deep below earth, and other samples to train users on the benefits of using the high energy x-rays at CHESS to peer inside, or through their samples.
