A Southampton chemist has been chosen to deliver a series of lectures on the latest research in mass spectrometry to academics at universities throughout the UK during 2016.

Head of Characterisation and Analytics, Dr John Langley has been awarded this year’s prestigious British Mass Spectrometry Society Lectureship and is looking forward to travelling across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to deliver the talks, hold question and answer sessions and spark debate on a range of issues.

“This is a tremendous honour and I am delighted to be selected to take up this lectureship,” says John. “I have a passion for spreading the word about mass spectrometry and hope I can inspire the next generation of researchers to develop this fascinating area of chemistry still further.”

He is now preparing abstracts on three topical subjects in his work so researchers in the venues he will visit during the year can choose from the list. They are:

  • Biodiesel and the analytical challenge
  • Predictive science and mass spectrometry using computational methods
  • Supercritical fluid chromatography mass spectrometry – the final piece in the analyst’s toolbox

John is a past chair of the British Mass Spectrometry Society and is currently Vice President of the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation and chair of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Separation Science Group. He has more than 30 years experience in the field and has worked at the University of Southampton since 1988.
