Malvern Panalytical Speakers:
Dr. Claudia Mujat joined Malvern Panalytical as Application Scientist in 2007 and is presently the Application Laboratory Supervisor in our Westborough, MA office. She has over eighteen years’ experience in light scattering, imaging and spectral characterization of a broad range of materials. Besides managing feasibility studies for prospective customers, Claudia’s current role includes training, advising, and supporting customers, while also writing and delivering scientific content.
Claudia obtained her PhD in Optics at UCF’s CREOL/College of Optics and Photonics with a thesis in multiple scattering characterization of inhomogeneous media. Her postdoctoral research was in light scattering investigation of cancerous cells at Harvard Medical School and Tufts University.
Nejea Davis joined Malvern Panalytical in 2012 with a Masters in Chemistry from Temple University. While initially supporting the Nanometric products (including Zetasizer and NanoSight) for few years, she currently works as the Imaging Technical Specialist for the Americas. She performs application studies to help customers solve their application problem, provides training and instrument demonstration. Prior to joining Malvern Panalytical she taught Analytical instrumentation and techniques to undergraduate seniors, and worked on her graduate research projects using the Capillary Gradient Elution Isotachophoresis (cGEITP) counterflow techniques to separate amino acids. Also, her undergraduate research focused on investigating inhaler drug compounds by reverse phase HPLC, and also Nylon 6,6 synthesis, and characterization using DSC and FTIR.
Evan White is an Assistant Research Scientist and Director of the Bioseniatic? Laboratory at the UGA New Materials Institute. Dr. White graduated from UGA in 2014 with his PhD in chemistry, after studying under the direction of Jason Locklin. He then entered a joint postdoctoral appointment between UGA and Molecular Therapeutics, LLC, as a biochemical engineer with a focus on developing antimicrobial therapies. Dr. White transitioned to the New Materials Institute after it was founded in 2016. He works closely with the Institute’s industry partners to aid and advance specialized product development with a focus on developing compostable plastics.
Kevin joined KBI-Boulder in 2016 to help build a world-class particle analytics team (Associate Director, Particle Characterization Core Facility) under the direction of Amber Fradkin. He concentrates his efforts in sub-visible particle imaging and spectroscopy, aggregate formation, and small molecule formulation deconstruction, with a dose of external business development in small- and large-molecule pharma. Kevin is a proud member of the growing industry-leading analytics teams that KBI is assembling to complement manufacturing and process-development core strengths. Prior to joining KBI, Kevin worked as a global technical specialist for Malvern Instruments’ Biotechnology Development Initiative, concentrating on light scattering (LD, DLS), microscopy & image analysis, and spectroscopy. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from The Pennsylvania State University (State College, PA), where his research concentrated on understanding solvent dynamical control of chemical reactions using ultrafast electronic spectroscopy. After his academic career, Kevin completed a National Research Council postdoctoral appointment at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC, where he explored vibrational energy relaxation in normal, ionic, and micellar solvent systems using ultrafast vibrational spectroscopy.
