Dr. Kidder will focus on developing and expanding our suite of scientific instruments to meet the requirements of selected key life science markets and applications.
Dr. Kidder will collaborate with key opinion leaders and scientists across a number of life science industries to provide market requirements to the product development teams at HORIBA. She will also collaborate with the other HORIBA segments, including the HORIBA Medical and HORIBA Process and Environmental segments, to leverage their expertise and enable key joint product developments.
Prior to joining HORIBA, Linda co-founded Spectral Dimensions, who provided spectroscopic imaging solutions to the pharmaceutical industry.
