David Koppenaal

David W. Koppenaal is Chief Technology Officer at the Enviromental Molecular Sciences Center (EMSL) at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, WA. Dr. Koppenaal’s research interests include the development of new instrumental and spectroscopic techniques for metallomics applications and the metallomic study of cyanobacterial systems. Dr. Koppenaal was an early proponent of metallomics as a new science discipline, serving as an advocate and speaker on this topic since 2000, organizing the first symposia focused on this topic in the US, and serving as co-chair of the 2nd International Metallomics Symposium (2009). Dr. Koppenaal is well-known for his fundamental science investigations and innovations in atomic mass spectrometry, including the initial development and demonstration of effective reaction cell technology and associated ion molecule reaction approaches for interference reduction in ICPMS. More recently he has developed and applied ultra-high resolution orbital trapping MS techniques to metallomics applications. Dr. Koppenaal has also served as Editorial Board member of JAAS, and as Chair of the Analytical Division of the American Chemical Society. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Chemical Society.
