Teresa Lemmon has over 15 years experience as an analytical chemist. Her experience includes a wide variety of analytical techniques including elemental analysis by ICP, AAS, XRF and separation techniques including GC, LC, and IC. This analysis is critical to researchers monitoring substrates, intermediates or products in a system, determining catalyst activity and loading, and evaluating trace contaminants in raw materials and/or products.

Research Interests

  • Providing analytical analysis including method development, separation, identification and quantification.

Education and Credentials

  • Ph.D. Analytical Chemistry, Oregon State University
  • B.A. Math/Chemistry, University of Northern Colorado
