From Belgium

#1 Post by jeve398 » Sun May 17, 2015 9:00 am

Hi,
I'm Joris, 50 years young, living in Belgium close to Leuven.
I've been interested in microscopy and science in general since I was a kid.
That's why I became a lab technician with chemical and biochemical background.
I've been working in a materials lab for almost 15 years, with lots of microscopic work on metals (aircraft engine and structural parts, weld and quality control), using standard tools, inverted microscopes and XRF/ICP. For more than 10 years now, no longer working in a lab (with microscopes) but still in a technical role.
Currently, I've a small lab with several microscopes, Olympus BHA/BHB/BHMJ/CK/POST/HSC.
I'm also a member of a club of microscope enthousiast in Antwerp (north of Belgium), KAGM => http://www.microscopie.be/

Hope to make contact with enthousiast in microscopy learn/share a lot of info.

Grts - Joris

Welcome jeve398.

From your description it would seem that we have a lot to learn from you.

Very impressed with the quick look around http://www.microscopie.be/ I have taken so far.

Looking forward to seeing photographs of your microscopes/Lab in the My microscope section.
Zeiss Standard WL (somewhat fashion challenged) & Wild M8
Olympus E-P2 (Micro Four Thirds Camera)
