Qualities of a successful mentor or educator? Making an effort to stay abreast of developments in a wide array of fields, not just what’s happening in your own scientific  backyard. Over the years, I’ve adopted and applied ideas from biochemists, physical organic chemists, and chemical engineers to analytical chemistry goals. Having a wider pool of knowledge to draw from can provide hugely beneficial when educating students – and also proves the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration. Working on your own analytical science skills and improving as a scientist will also improve your teaching skills.

The Magnificent Tens

The Magnificent Tens
After 2016’s celebration of women in analytical science, we return to the Top 100 for 2017.
But there’s a twist. This summer, we asked you to nominate scientists in ten categories – from the stars of separation science, to omics explorers, to the mentors training the next generation.
