analytical instrument support


“In 2000 I started my career as an Analytical Chemist for Global Analysis in the food testing division.  It was here where I starting studying for a BSc in Chemistry part time alongside my role at Global.

In 2006 I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a BSc (HONS) in Chemistry.  I continued to develop my career as an analytical chemist gaining experience in method development and validation in HPLC, HPLC-MS, GC, GC-MS.  I developed experience in the Pharmaceutical industry, Fragrance sector and Chemical processing sectors.

It was in my role at 3M Healthcare in the analytical support division that I began to get more involved in instrument maintenance and repairs and in 2012 I began my journey as a Field Service Engineer with Perkin Elmer. I have continued this journey and have developed experience in GC, GC-MS, ATD, Head Space and HPLC on Perkin Elmer, Entech Instruments, Agilent, and Shimadzu systems.

2019 saw me join Effectech as a Laboratory Support Engineer for a World Leading Gas Metrology Laboratory where I helped to set up a programme of Maintenance for site from scratch for over 30 GC systems, built and validated bespoke GC systems for Gas analysis solutions, and offered GC training to internal staff and external customers in the Training Academy.

In February 2022 I became a Senior Field Service Engineer here at Anatune and cannot wait to get cracking.

In my free time I play Euphonium culminating in playing in the official theatre production of Brassed Off and am a supporter of Burton Albion.  I enjoy spending time with my family including trips with my daughter to Thomas Land.”
