The Power List 2014

James Harynuk

Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Calling: “Chemistry is fascinating – everything is chemistry, right? Why analytical and specifically GC×GC? You can’t beat the fun of building tools to probe chemical systems. The more complex the better.”

Regret: “If I started over now, the path would be different because opportunities change. But I’d still be an analytical chemist.”

Emphasis: “Unlocking the information in structured chromatograms, chemometrics, applications of GC×GC and building new toys – I mean tools.”

Triumph: “My awesome kids. Followed closely by our contributions to GC and GC×GC modeling.”

Respect: “Easy. Pat Sandra and Milton Lee.”

Advice: “i) Be ready to answer when opportunity knocks. ii) The lab cannot be your whole life; leave room for other things.”

Top 40 Under 40

In 2013, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential analytical scientists – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. Our 2014 Top 40 Under 40 list almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977.
