Single biggest challenge? Accessibility. The amazing technologies that exist currently across the field of analytical chemistry are helping to solve a number of biological, environmental, medical, and multidisciplinary applications. However, to realize their full potential these technologies have to be accessible to individuals outside of our field. This will require innovations in instrument design that include easy user interfaces, portability, affordability, and simple readouts. 

Advice? Analytical chemistry is one of the best fields you can work in to truly learn persistence, patience, and problem solving. For those up-and-coming analytical chemists, I encourage you to view others' footsteps as an opportunity to see what is possible – then don’t be afraid to take the steps necessary to forge your own path to greatness.
