The Power List 2020 – North America

Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Professor of Applied Physical Sciences and Minnie N. Goldby Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

Reason for pursuing analytical science: While as an undergraduate student I enjoyed chemistry, but once I took instrumental analysis as a senior, I found that I was intrigued by instrumentation.

Future of the field: I hope we are somewhere beyond my wildest imagination!

Dinner party guest: Richard Feynman. His biographies show that he was obviously very clever and probably someone who was a lot of fun to be around.

Misconceptions of science in North America: Disconcertingly, current events in the USA suggest that there is a significant fraction of our population who do not believe in science or understand its teachings!

Nominator comment: His initial work on micro-total analysis systems set the stage for micro- and nanofluidic technologies.
