My name is Anh Reynolds. I'm an Analytical Chemist based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and originally from Hanoi, Vietnam. Although no longer writing codes and solving equations everyday, I still consider myself a theorist at heart. My mission as a scientist has been to generate practical insight by building mathematical models, running simulations, solving equations, and writing computer codes to facilitate all of the above.
I have studied and conducted scientific research in Singapore, Toulouse, and most recently Evanston, Illinois, where I earned my M.S. from Northwestern University. My graduate research was focused on making making quantum chemistry applicable to large-scale problems; I developed several new, scalable chemical physics models and implemented them in the open-source BAGEL package. I've always enjoyed working on making sense of the world at a molecular level and felt extrememly blessed for the opportunities academia gave me to travel and meet some amazing people. However, life took a turn, and never had I imagined I would have so much fun on this new journey learning about chromatography and instrumentation. In January 2020, my husband and I welcomed our little one, Teddy, who's certainly my biggest and most challenging project ever. Very soon, I hope to be able to combine my modelling skills and what I have learnt about chromatography in the past couple of years.
