Spectroscopymagazine is pleased to announce the addition of Ellen V. Miseo to its editorial advisory board.

Miseo, who has practiced vibrational spectroscopy throughout her career, developed new instrumentation, commercialized new techniques, and anticipated new trends in the industry.

Initially as a scientist at Arthur D. Little, Inc. Miseo developed her skills in applying infrared spectroscopy to traditional and non traditional problems. After moving to Bio-Rad’s Digilab division, which was sold off as a private company, she was the product manager and champion for the infrared imaging technology. When the business was acquired by Varian (later Agilent), she mentored new people and provided technical expertise across the entire infrared product line. After a brief career detour at Analytical Answers, Inc. (Woburn, Massachusetts), a service and testing laboratory, she returned to the challenges of the instrument industry, and she currently works in technology development at Hamamatsu Corporation (Bridgewater, New Jersey). Her accomplishments include development of equipment, and foreseeing customer trends and adapting to them.

Miseo has been actively involved in spectroscopy education. She is a member of the Coblentz Society education committee and has taught training courses on infrared spectroscopy and its uses in industry within the corporate framework of her employer. In addition, she was on the teaching staff of IR Courses, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide continuing education in infrared spectroscopy, and has been a course instructor for SpecAcademy, the new online training service of Spectroscopy.

Miseo received her BS in chemistry from St. Francis College (Brooklyn, New York), and her PhD in physical chemistry from Polytechnic Institute of New York (Brooklyn, New York). She is a member of the American Chemical Society, the Society for Applied Spectroscopy, and the Coblentz Society.
