Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, University of California, USA
Predictions? I hope our ability to annotate known unknowns in imaging mass spectrometry datasets increases with expanded instrument capabilities. It will also be exciting to see the development of subcellular imaging techniques for measuring protonated molecules.
Secret to success? Both my advisors valued collaborative science during my training and, with that in mind, I am most excited to continue exploring the boundaries of bioanalytical chemistry. Interdisciplinary collaborative research has been central to my lab’s ability to take risks. I would also like to credit the brave students who joined a new professor’s lab – without their hard work and dedication, I would not be where I am today. Thank you, Alanna Condren, Jess Little, Katherine Zink, and Melissa Galey.
Advice? Don’t be afraid to fail and take risks.
Mission? To help ensure that science continues to be a more inclusive field.
