What excites you about your role at SCIEX?
"I believe that the field of mass spectrometry is extremely exciting; this technology can be used in so many ways to advance research. We have such a broad range of innovative technologies, you can really be creative in how you approach and solve problems, creating new applications or applying an existing workflow to emerging research challenges. As a scientist, I learn something new every day and it is that challenge and that excitement that gets me out of bed in the morning!"
What are some of the biggest game changers you see in the advancement of Life Science Research?
"For Omics research in the biomarker space and in support of precision medicine, we have to go big! We need to industrialize how we have been approaching this research so we can run more samples with more reliable quantitation. I really feel like we are in a good place with our current toolkit! By running bigger cohorts and performing advanced informatics, our customers will increase the cadence of delivering solid biomarker panels that can be ultimately used in the clinic to impact how we think about health and wellness and disease treatment."
