As Special Project Coordinator, Clara is responsible for ensuring deadlines are met and project tasks are properly assigned. Let’s take the time to get to know more about new her role by reviewing her Q&A below:
Looking down the road, where do you see the company in…
I picture Chemical Solutions expanding their analytical techniques beyond ICP-MS and ICP-OES. Seeing how many techniques we are currently exploring or interested to explore, I believe in five years we would have utilized some of them. I also see us doing a lot more validation work and special projects.
In 10 years, I see us doubling in size and being the top analytical lab in United States, mastering all different kinds of analytical techniques.
Based on the 68 elements on the periodic table that Chemical Solutions tests for, which element would you use to describe yourself? And why?
Oxygen. It is a highly reactive element and an oxidizing agent that readily forms oxides with most elements. I am always ready to work with others and usually work well together as a team to achieve the goal.
What has been your favorite project at CSL?
It would be some of our animal-based projects where we work to provide the analytical testing data as part of a team working toward develop effective medical treatments for a variety of issues.
What do you find is the most challenging part of your job?
Balancing the workload in a contract testing laboratory is always challenging. The projects that we work on can be technically challenging requiring flexibility in scheduling to allow for additional development time as it becomes necessary!
