Expert has been a recognized expert and consultant in the chemical industry for more than 20 years. His computational chemistry experience has spanned everything from the "what if" questions of identifying target molecules to synthesize... to understanding why a particular molecule does what it does... to assessing the environmental impact of novel materials in preparation of pre-manufacturing notices (PMN). In addition to serving as the computational chemistry lead, Expert was named a Technical Adviser and managed the technical direction and coordination for nearly all laboratories in a global analytical science division.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Allentown, Pennsylvania - Reading, Pennsylvania - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania - Elizabeth, New Jersey - Trenton, New Jersey - Camden, New Jersey - Wilmington, Delaware - Baltimore, Maryland - Alexandria, Virginia
