Chrys Wesdemiotis received his Ph.D. degree with Helmut Schwarz at Technische Universität Berlin in 1979. He was a postdoctoral fellow with Fred W. McLafferty at Cornell University in 1980. After completing his military service in Greece (1981-3), he returned to Cornell as a senior research associate (1983-9). In 1989, he joined the faculty of the University of Akron, where he currently is Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, Polymers Science, and Integrated Bioscience. Research in the Wesdemiotis group focuses on the development and applications of multi-dimensional mass spectrometry methods for the characterization of new synthetic polymers and polymer-biomolecule conjugates and interfaces. Wesdemiotis served as a Member-at-Large for Education in the Board of Directors of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). He is an Editor of the European Journal of Mass Spectrometry and a member of the Editorial Boards of the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, International Journal of Mass Spectrometry, and Mass Spectrometry Reviews.
