Michelle Chen, Ph.D.Vice President of Analytical Services at Wyatt Technology
Dr. Michelle Chen is the Vice President of Analytical Sciences at Wyatt Technology Corporation located in Santa Barbara, California. Dr. Chen graduated from the Chemical Engineering Department at Yale University, where she studied under the late Professor Csaba Horvath. Her doctoral work focused on developing novel HPLC approaches towards high speed and high efficiency separation of biopolymers. Dr. Chen joined Wyatt Technology in 1996. Since then, she has incorporated multi-angle light scattering and dynamic light scattering detection into the characterization of various synthetic and biological polymers with HPLC and field-flow fractionation. In the past couple of years, Dr. Chen led the Analytical Sciences team at Wyatt Technology to develop various SEC/FFF-MALS and DLS methods for characterizing and quantifying a variety of emerging bio-nanoparticles, including various viral vectors, lipid nanoparticles, and extracellular vesicles.
