I received my B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Scranton and my Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Georgetown University. I began at NIST as an NRC post-doctoral associate and have continued as a Research Chemist on staff. I've worked on a variety of projects at NIST analyzing bacteria, foods, clinical matrices, and pharmaceutical materials, all using mass spectrometry. I am currently focused on the analysis of small organic molecules in food and clinical materials, and am the Program Coordinator for Clinical Standard Reference Materials in the Organic Chemical Measurement Science group.
