Calling: “Chemistry was effortless and the opportunities just seemed to follow.”

Regret: “No.  But I would really love to have some undergraduate biochemistry and molecular biology. And to be able to speak a Chinese language.”

Emphasis: “Simplifying sample preparation to make uTASs through the use of electrokinetic and hydrodynamic phenomena.”

Triumph: “Microchip methods for DNA extraction and electrokinetics for extracting and concentrating drugs from whole blood.”

Respect: Jim Jorgenson & Juan Santiago

Hope: “To see widespread uptake of electrophoresis in miniaturized analytical devices.|”

Prediction: “Additive manufacturing will completely change what we can do in microfluidics.”

Advice: “Think big and think different.”
