Kevin McHale
Senior Applications Scientist, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Kevin started his career with DuPont Merck, where he helped implement walk-up LC-MS.  After 3 years, he left to pursue his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry under the direction of Professor Rick Yost at the University of Florida.  Upon completion in 2002, Kevin joined Thermo Fisher Scientific as an LC-MS Applications Marketing Specialist.  He presently specializes in developing LC-MS and IC-MS methodology for quantitative analyses of small organic compounds.

Sean McCormick, Ph.D.
Senior Applications Scientist, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Sean earned his Ph.D. in Bioanalytical Chemistry from Texas A&M University where he developed novel analytical techniques for study metal ion trafficking in biological systems. In 2014, Sean joined the faculty at Ferris State University as an Assistant Professor in Chemistry and the founding Director of the Research Core Laboratory. After 2 years he left the University to join Thermo Fisher Scientific as field application scientist for LCMS. Over his 4 years Sean has transitioned into a laboratory based role focused on small molecule analysis using QQQ and HRAM techniques. He specializes in both quantitative and qualitative analysis of small molecules using LC-MS, IC-MS, and specialty ionization sources.
