Victors’ main task in the project is the maintenance and customization of MS equipment needed for the laser-MS system. Victor has a degree in chemical engineering and a background in the maintenance and troubleshooting of various mass spectrometric equipment. Such knowledge and skills have been very helpful to the project and Victor has done a very good job. With his help, the first promising results with the project were obtained recently: https://analytical.chem.ut.ee/2022/03/recent-developments-of-our-laser-ms-system/.

All the best to Victor and Dr. Signe Vahur’s PRG team for future experiments!
