Host Andrew Storey and Co-Host David Russ present a roundtable discussion with the Planning Committee from the Multi-Dimensional Chromatography Workshop. The interviewed group includes: Kate Perrault Uptmore, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at William and Mary; PH Stefanuto, Lead Scientist at the University of Liege; Dwight Stoll, Professor of Chemistry at Gustavus Adolphus College; and Petr Vozka, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at California State University at Los Angeles. LECO is a 2024 Sponsor of the Multi-Dimensional Chromatography Workshop which will be hosted by Petr Vozka at Cal State University and the Complex Chemical Composition Analysis Laboratory 10-12 January 2024.
We are joined by Petr Vozka, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at California State University, Los Angeles where he leads the Complex Chemical Composition Analysis Lab. Prof. Vozka completed his PhD work at Purdue University, where he also spent time doing post-doctoral research. At Purdue, he first encountered LECO’s separation sciences equipment and progressed his research to Cal State LA as a faculty member in 2020. His research is centered around non-targeted analyses of a wide range of complex mixtures including fuels, products from plastic waste depolymerization, fingerprints, and oil spills. This year, LCGC recognized Prof. Vozka as a Rising Star in Separation Sciences and LECO launched a new laboratory in partnership with Cal State LA with several different pieces of LECO equipment.

Andrew Storey and Mason Marsh interview Dr. Jason Streubel, Senior Director of the Center for Agriculture & Food Security for the Convoy of Hope, on how LECO analytical instruments can help the Center's analysis capabilities.
Nick Jones, LECOs newly promoted Global Application and Development Director (Separation Sciences) calls in from Germany to discuss Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry with host Andrew Storey. The two discuss Nick's experience from the Fragrance and Cosmetics industry and discuss how time-of-flight spectrometers, such at the LECO Pegasus® series, offer laboratories speed and simplicity.
Dr. Arne Bengtson from Swerim in Sweden and Dr. Kim Marshall from LECO sit down with Andrew to discuss their careers in atomic spectroscopy, particularly their collaboration around LECO’s glow discharge products. They share stories of exciting research and new sample types that helped advance the field today and perspectives for the future of glow discharge spectroscopy.
We sit down with Farai Rukunda, LECO's Director of Separation Science Customer Success, to learn about Farai's passions for customer success at LECO and his personal support of education in Zimbabwe.
In the inaugural episode of "Measured Science," hosts Andrew Storey, LECO Field Sales Specialist for Materials Analysis, and Matt Germscheid, LECO Metallographic Product Manager, interview recent LECO retiree David Coulston. Coulston served as LECO's Corporate Metallurgist for 15 years and shares experiences of a technology-enhanced career in Metallurgy.
