The Power List 2020 – North America

Fellow, Analytical Science, Core R&D, Dow Chemical, MI, USA

Reason for pursuing analytical science: Analytical chemistry is the foundation for many disciplines’ successes, from drug discoveries to the commercialization of consumer products. I am passionate about problem solving and have a strong desire to make a positive impact, particularly in separation sciences. A career in this field is highly rewarding, as new challenges continue to emerge

Future of the field: Despite being considered a well-established technology with its invention dating back over half a century ago, GC’s popularity and impact are not only healthy but increasing! There are continuous innovations in hardware and applications. Hyphenated techniques, along with advances in digital transformation, AI, electronics, material science, 3D-printing manufacturing, and improved surface deactivation chemistries, will assert the technique’s value in enabling future success.

Advice to younger self: Find your motivation, nurture your passion, and follow your dream. Take time to enjoy the journey, and learn from and share with others your experience. Modern science is a team sport.
