Distinguished Professor, Analytical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA

Snapshot: “In 1984, I decided to come to the US. There were too many smart people in LC and GC, so I decided to go into something that no-one else was doing seriously – preparative chromatography. Chemical engineers had no idea about the subtleties of the stationary phase, for instance, and analysts had no ideas about chemical engineering. I didn’t have much idea either but I knew enough to marry them together.
