Director of Sales and Marketing
Chris grew up in Berks County, PA and obtained his BS in Chemistry from Kutztown University in 2000, graduating magna cum laude, working under the guidance of Dr. Ed Vitz. Chris’s undergraduate research project involved interfacing various sensors to a computer using LabVIEW as an ActiveX container for Excel. This enabled the general chemistry students to study the concepts rather than worry about the tedious details of data acquisition.
Chris always had a desire to attend graduate school but at the end of his senior year he enjoyed all fields of chemistry (except quantum mechanics!), so he decided to wait until the time was right to narrow his field. He went to work for Merck and & Co., Inc. in West Point, PA, after finishing at Kutztown, specialized in method development for HPLC and LC/MS and structure elucidation using NMR. There he met several people who graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the direction of Dr. Royce W. Murray. Their discussions on the beauty of electrochemistry prompted him to pack up and move to North Carolina. What? You didn't know that electrochemistry is beautiful? That's what a little focus will do for you.
The Murray lab allowed him to study electrochemistry, learn synthetic organic skills, and expand his analytical toolbox. Chris’s work centered around redox-active nanoparticles (metal, metal-oxide, and polymeric) both in solution and as films. Chris’s work with an electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance at UNC caught the attention of Gamry and Chris lead our charge with the eQCM 10M. He's also talking about electrochemistry on the telephone with our customers, where his natural teaching skills become obvious.

Jacob was born in Kansas, quickly moved to Dallas until he was 14, then hustled back to Kansas. Jacob finished high school by doing well academically and, more importantly, capturing the Umbro Poll, signifying the national championship in soccer.
Jacob received his B.S. Chemistry degree from the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Recommended by Dr. Cindy Larive, he attended graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where his Research Advisor was Dr. Mark Wightman.
Jacob had a number of projects at UNC. He specialized in making electrogenerated chemiluminescence measurements with ultramicroelectrodes at high efficiency and high speed. His experience with microelectrodes was of interest to Gamry -- that's where the instrument meets the sample!
After UNC, Jacob spent 1 1/2 years at a postdoctoral appointment with Dr. Chad Mirkin at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL working on electrodeposition, sensors, and nanomaterials. Jacob joined Gamry in 2008 and has been helping people ever since.

Andrew graduated with his Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering from Florida Institute of Technology. He worked for a Florida based R&D company where he was introduced to electrochemistry. Upon returning to Florida Tech for his Master’s degree he focused on improving catalyst synthesis’ through electrochemical techniques. Primarily he used electrodeposition to simultaneously synthesis and deposit tin oxide as a catalyst for carbon dioxide reduction…another electrochemical process.
During graduate school he found a love of teaching. He has taught chemistry and chemical engineering courses from high school to graduate level courses. And now he can continue educating through his interactions with our customers every day.

Jerome grew up in Saipan, CNMI until he moved to Issaquah, WA. He attended Washington State University in Pullman WA where he received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. He also received a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at Washington State University studying electron transfer in biofilms. As a part of the graduation requirement, Jerome held a summer internship with Gamry Instruments in 2012 where he learned to appreciate the instrumentation behind electrochemical measurement.
Jerome’s expertise is in both biofilm engineering and the application of electrochemical techniques to study electrochemically active biofilms. He has used microsensors, rotating electrodes, quartz crystal microbalance in combination with electrochemical impedance spectroscopy to correlate biofilm impedance with biofilm growth in situ. He has published several papers on this topic and is also a co-editor on a book covering this topic: “Biofilms in Bioelectrochemical Systems: From Laboratory Practice to Data Interpretation”.
