The Power List 2014
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.”
