I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Illinois and held research positions at Northwestern University before joining Waters Corporation. At Waters, my work has focused on both bioseparations and small molecule separations, particularly with MS detection. I have developed techniques for purification, notably At-column Dilution, as well as tools for bioseparations, including Auto•Blend Plus. I have published and presented papers on analytical biochemistry, capillary electrophoresis, mass spectrometry and preparative chromatography. Recently, I have focused on synergies in separation systems and novel approaches to multi-dimensional chromatography.
