Feb. 1998 to 2010: Staff Scientist, Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Research has involved: characterization of aerosols by mass spectrometry; development of aerosol-base MALDI of biomolecules in an ion trap; mass spectrometry of bacteria, chemical weapons agents, explosives; isotope mass spectral analysis of single airborne particles; analysis of the formation of elemental carbon by hydrocarbon pyrolysis, formation of carbon nanotubes and carbon composites; digital ion trap development; development of miniature ion trap mass spectrometers; development of methods and instrumentation to extend the working range of mass spectrometry out to the billion Da range and beyond.
July 2010 to present: Associate professor of chemistry, Washington State University. My group has increased the working range of mass spectrometers from roughly m/z 20,000 to m/z 1,000,000. My research is therefore focused on the development and applications of ultra high mass spectrometry. Application development will focus on the measurement of complex protein distributions, discovery of biomarkers, the interaction of proteins to form complexes with small and large molecules, DNA sequencing and much more. My group will also continue to develop digital waveform technology in the small and large molecule regimes.
