Chris Pulliam: A Tale of Two Entities: From Academia to Industry
Abstract: Securing your first ‘real job’ is more than demonstrating what you learned during your undergraduate or graduate education. It’s about showing that you can identify and solve the challenges your potential employer faces. Herein I will discuss my current role as a Senior Scientist in the Corporate Analytical Group at Procter and Gamble and my journey to establish a unique role as I evolve my skills to meet new business needs. Additionally, I will discuss how I convinced a team of LC-MS experts to give me a chance to prove myself.

Bio:Dr. Christopher Pulliam completed both a BS and Chemistry and PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Purdue University. At Purdue, he developed novel applications for portable mass spectrometry which included real-time monitoring of multiple chemical reactions simultaneously, quantifying UV exposure on the skin by directly monitoring skin chemicals, and detecting pesticides in situ which may be harmful to pets. Upon completing his degree in 2017, Chris accepted a post-doctoral offer from Procter and Gamble where he developed new test methods for complex botanical extracts to prove their safety and efficacy using high-resolution mass spectrometry. The following year, Chris was offered a full-time position at P&G where he now combines machine learning and high-resolution mass spectrometry techniques to solve complex data problems related to raw material evaluation, cost analysis, performance testing, and product failure.
