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.
