The Power List 2014
Postdoctoral Scholar, Department of Chemistry, Stanford University, CA, USA.
Calling: “I am passionate about research at the interface of chemistry and medicine. Through the development of novel mass spectrometry techniques, I believe cancer diagnosis and treatment will be significantly improved.”
Emphasis: “Developing novel ambient mass spectrometry imaging techniques and biostatistical tools for discovering metabolic profiles that are diagnostic of human cancers.”
Triumph: “I received the 2012 ACS Nobel Laureate Signature Award for Graduate Education, given to the best doctoral thesis in Chemistry.”
Respect: “Graham Cooks for his work in mass spectrometry. Richard Zare for his work in laser-induced fluorescence.”
Hopes: “My goals are to develop and translate ambient mass spectrometry technology to the clinic for routine, rapid, and in situ diagnosis of human cancers, and for intrasurgical tumor margin evaluation.”
Advice: “Discover and pursue research that you are completely passionate about. Deeply learn the best analytical tools applicable to your research.”
