Born in France, Gregory Vieux received his B.S. degree (honors) from the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Lyon, France, in 1999, and obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2004 from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK, where he worked on the first experimental developments of a short laser pulse amplifier based on Raman backscattering in plasma. From September 2004 to December 2006, he was a Postdoctoral Member of the ITFIP group at the Laboratoire de Physique des Gaz et des Plasmas, Orsay, France, where he experimentally studied collisionally pumped optical-field ionised X-UV lasers and laser wakefield acceleration. Since 2007 he has rejoined the plasma division at University of Strathclyde as a Research Fellow to carry on his work on Raman amplification with the goal of developing the next generation of high power laser systems. Moreover, he also actively contributes to the group research activities in laser guiding, laser wakefield acceleration, and betatron emission from accelerated electron beams.
