Continuing our introductions to members of the FT team, today we’re putting the spotlight on Guy Stimpson, Applications Scientist. Recently, Guy has been running frequent virtual product demonstrations for the FT4 Powder Rheometer in our new product studio.
After graduating with a degree in Astrophysics Guy went on to complete a PhD in Experimental Quantum Physics at Warwick University, joining us in 2022 after further post-doctorate research. In his spare time, Guy continues to pursue an interest in astronomy and is also a keen hiker.
Best thing about your job? I love the global reach of our services and the people I meet from all around the world who are working in so many different areas. Most weeks I speak to someone from each continent and there’s always something new to learn.
Most interesting thing you've worked on? I have worked with a few clients testing explosives which poses some interesting health and safety challenges. It makes you think really carefully about how you go about your work!
One thing you wish more people understood about powders? That powders are everywhere and vital to so much of what we do. Without powders our world would grind to a halt, and so understanding powder behaviour not only helps individuals and their companies but is crucial for the efficient future development of people and society as a whole.
