  • Brief Bio

    Andrej Grubisic is a research scientist with a shared appointment between University of Maryland, College Park, and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Johns Hopkins University and was an NRC/NIST postdoctoral fellow at JILA – University of Colorado. With extensive experience in ultrafast laser technology, mass spectrometry, as well as electron and optical microspectroscopy, he is broadly interested in the development of, both, space-flight and field-portable instrumentation for sensitive chemical detection and identification. His current research focuses on the advancement of miniature mass spectrometers and implementation of novel ionization schemes that hold potential to significantly reduce sample handling on future planetary missions.
