Research goal: My research has moved towards small, portable chromatographic instrumentation, most recently producing a hand-portable micro/nanoflow capillary liquid chromatograph.
Best advice received: When I started at Brigham Young University some 40 years ago, I was advised to look for opportunities for collaboration. Taking this advice, I’ve had the pleasure to work with colleagues in environmental biology, developmental biology, microbiology, plant science, chemical, mechanical and electrical engineering, physics, and so on.
Nominator comment: “Milton has made consistent contributions to separation science in many fields, and is a pioneer in the development of new technologies and instruments.”
