I received my Ph.D. in Biology from Virginia Tech, mostly by doing MS-based small molecule elucidation and quantification, with a little bit of proteomics. Afterward I held 2 postdoctoral positions, the first at Johns Hopkins and the second at the National Cancer Institute before taking a Staff Scientist position at the NIAID. What I do now and who I work for isn't quite relevant to this blog.
These days -- I'm a hobbyist scientist. I do global proteomics and untargeted metabolomics mostly for fun. I knock out a few papers here and there on things I personally find really interesting. I keep thinking I need to come up with some other kind of indoor hobby, but it still hasn't ever happened!
If you'd like to reach me, the best way is to place a comment on the blog post of interest, or send me a direct email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are in the Maryland or Washington D.C. area you will probably receive a response from my, or a colleague's official work email address.
