Alan K. Jarmusch
Alan K. Jarmusch received a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Chemistry at Purdue University, mentored by Professor R. Graham Cooks. His current research interest includes the development and application of ambient ionization-mass spectrometry in the fields of medicine and natural products.
Valentina Pirro received her Ph.D. in Science and High Technology from the University of Turin, Italy. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher in Chemistry at Purdue University. Her current research interest includes the application of cutting-edge mass spectrometric techniques (e.g., ambient mass spectrometry, imaging mass spectrometry) in the field of clinical and forensic toxicology.
Kevin S. Kerian
Kevin S. Kerian received a B.S. in Chemistry and Biochemistry from Western Kentucky University and is currently in the PhD program at Purdue University, studying analytical chemistry under the advisement of Professor R. Graham Cooks. His current research interest pursues advancing translation science through the development and application of ambient ionization-mass spectrometry for molecular diagnostics.
Graham Cooks was educated at the University of Natal, South Africa, and at Cambridge University in the UK. Since 1990 he has been Henry Bohn Hass Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Purdue University. Cooks has been a major contributor to advances in instrumentation and methodology for mass spectrometry. His interests involve construction of mass spectrometers and their use in fundamental studies and applications.
