Interests

As an Analytical Chemist I am interested in identifying and quantifying compounds. While there are many advanced instruments which improve our understanding of compound structure and quantity it is still difficult to identify which compounds critically impact the system begin researched. To fill this need I like explore new tools to help identify critical compounds, one that I believe shows promise is the of A.I. for data mining. It is my hope to develop a tool in which chemists and researchers can use to determine the compound(s) or class of compounds which most impact their system of study.
