About me


I am an analytical chemist with expertise and wide-ranging experience in analytical chemistry instrumentation: use, method development, design, and engineering– in both laboratory and field deployment.

I like tinkering and troubleshooting instrumentation hardware. And building analytical methodologies and multi-component systems.

And tinkering. And troubleshooting. And experimenting.
