Over the past decade I held many responsibilities including the direction of the development of scientific software applications for spectroscopy and general chemistry, directing marketing efforts, sales and business development collaborations for the company. Eight years experience of analytical laboratory leadership and management. Experienced in experimental techniques, implementation of new NMR technologies, walk-up facility management, research and development, manufacturing support and teaching. Ability to provide situation analysis, creative solutions and establish good working relationships. Prolific author with over a hundred peer-reviewed scientific publications, 3 patents and many public presentations.

Founder of ChemZoo Inc., the host of ChemSpider (www.chemspider.com). ChemSpider is an open access online database of chemical structures and property transaction based services to enable chemists around the world to data mine chemistry databases. The Royal Society of Chemistry acquired ChemSpider in May 2009.

Presently working as a consortium member of the OpenPHACTS IMI project. This focuses on how drug discovery can utilize semantic technologies to improve decision making and brings together 22 European team members to develop an infrastructure to link together public and private data for the drug discovery community.

I'm a science copyeditor, and I truly don't know how I'd manage without this book. If it has to do with chemistry, it's here (thank heaven!). And there's a wealth of clear information about how to format math, a wonderful list of unit abbreviations, and even a fair amount about physics- and biology-related terminology. It has the most lucid and concise explanations I've seen about when to apply italics or roman. And it's reasonably priced. Of course, if you specifically need to follow ACS style, this book is de rigeur, but even if you don't, you'll find it invaluable for science copyediting.

The list of abbreviations and common solvent names is great for writing experimental sections on lab reports for Advanced Organic Chemistry Lab. The reference examples are also particularly helpful for citing sources in the intro, etc. I look forward to using this again in Polymers Lab and would recommend to any college student who doesn't want to annoy their TA with formatting questions. Only downside is the price.

In anticipation of starting my own business as a freelance scientific editor, I bought several style guides, one of which was this style guide and including the highly recommended "Scientific Style and Format" from CSE. The ACS Style Guide is the one I use the most, and now it's falling apart and I need to purchase another. I absolutely can't do without it!
