In her video, CHESS user Aeriel Murphy-Leonard, Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, describes knowing nothing about synchrotrons before discovering CHESS, but quickly learning how great they can be!

About CHESS in particular, she enjoys "that it's very education-focused, so you can come in not an expert and leave with an expertise that's very valuable."
