FOSS scientist Mark Westerhaus recognized for outstanding achievements in NIR spectroscopy
FOSS scientist Mark Westerhaus has received an award for outstanding achievements in Near Infrared Spectroscopy at a ceremony held at the Eastern Analytical Symposium in New Jersey, USA today.
Each year the Eastern Analytical Symposium honors Analytical Chemists who have distinguished career achievements. The recipients of these awards advanced their fields by superior work in developing theory, techniques and/or instrumentation.
Mark Westerhaus has been developing and applying chemometric methods to NIR spectroscopic data for more than 35 years. Along the way, he developed several chemometric advancements including instrument standardization, MPLS, LOCAL and repeatability files. Mark Westerhaus has authored or co-authored numerous scientific papers and book chapters, and he currently holds the position of senior chemometrician at FOSS.
The latest development from Westerhaus is a new and efficient method for adulteration detection named Maximum Peak T; watch the video to get more information on the background of this method and download the white paper on qualification methods to get more information on the qualification model possibilities using WinISI. The whitepaper can be downloaded from the In Focus magazine no.1 2014.
We are very proud to have Mark Westerhaus working at FOSS and congratulate him on his award for Outstanding Achievements in Near-Infrared Spectroscopy. The award ceremony was followed by a scientific session with speakers from FOSS, the University of Copenhagen and Walloon Agricultural Research Centre.
