Christopher Welch

The Power List 2021

Executive Director, Indiana Consortium for Analytical Science & Engineering (ICASE), a joint venture between Purdue University, Indiana University and the University of Notre Dame

Biggest breakthrough? It has been very exciting to observe and to participate in the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence to analytical chemistry, analytical instrumentation, and measurement science. This area is moving by leaps and bounds; progress has been stunning. I’m looking forward to what comes next. 

Heroes? I have been very lucky to have some really great mentors, including William Pirkle, Donald Cram, Michael Doyle, Koji Nakanishi, and R Graham Cooks.

Advice? Follow your passion, ask for advice but make your own decisions. Work hard, but also take time to enjoy family and friends, and to see the world. Have confidence in your vision, speak truth to power, and look for fun in everything you do.
