Jonathan Dunscombe, Senior Application Chemist

Jonathan Dunscombe, Senior Application Chemist

What are your principal responsibilities at Anatune?

As senior application chemist, I take care of automated method development for Water & Environmental applications. However, I also work across a range of other industries. As well as this, on-going customer support forms a big part of the role in terms of method development support, training, and responding to technical queries.

 

What websites or digital tools do you use most in your day-to-day job role?

NIST library and the NIST web-book. They’re great resources and really useful tools which provide information on individual chemical compounds to help inform my method development process.

 

What is your favourite feature of them?

Instant knowledge at the touch of a button. The convenience and accuracy really helps me to be as efficient as possible.

 

Outside of your work, what piece of technology you could never do without?

To be honest, I’m not hugely driven by technology or gadgets, however even I think WiFi is super useful and would be pretty hard to live without!

Kathy Ridgway, Senior Application Chemist

What are your principal responsibilities at Anatune?

I’m a Senior Applications Chemist so I’m responsible for a variety of things. Running projects in the lab and providing customer training and support following installations takes up most of my time. In addition to this, I work closely with our Commercial and Support Teams to ensure customer satisfaction at all times.

Due to my previous roles, today I mostly deal with applications relating to FMCG. In particular, flavour and fragrance which is an area i really enjoy.

 

What websites or digital tools do you use most in your day-to-day job role?

Gerstel and Agilent Resources provide vital information to help with instrument configuration and use. I also use the GoodScents website to check odours of compounds when working on flavour and fragrance applications.

 

What is your favourite feature of these digital resources?

The exceptional Search functionality offers fast access to exactly what I need. This definitely helps with efficiency.

 

Outside of your work, what piece of technology you could never do without?

I could quite easily cope without most technology in my personal life. However, my phone is what I use most.

 

 

Camilla Liscio, Senior Applications Chemist

Camilla Liscio, Senior Application Chemist

What are your principal responsibilities at Anatune?

As a senior application chemist, I collaborate with customers to develop and optimise automated analytical solutions which address their unique needs.

 

What websites or digital tools do you use most in your day-to-day job role?

Chemicalize and chemspider are very useful websites to gather physical chemical information on analytes. Google will always be the most efficient way to dig out literature form different sources.

Additionally, I’d have to say Teams and LinkedIn are vital in order to communicate with customers and collaborators.

 

What is your favourite feature of these digital resources?

I think it’s the versatility and power of these tools which offer me the most value.

 

Outside of your work, what piece of technology you could never do without?

Just like Kathy, it would have to be my phone!
