Course Instructor's Biography
|After teaching undergraduate chemistry at West Point and Juniata College, Rick joined Restek in 1997 and, until recently, directed their technical education program. He taught chemistry and separation science theory through the Restek Learning Network (RLN), and coached other Restek instructors in public speaking. With 30-plus years of teaching experience, Rick has taught science and communications courses to widely diverse audiences, including NATO officials, technicians at the U.N. Pesticides Laboratory in Austria, and scientists at the University of Nairobi as well as flavor scientists in Shanghai, China. A background in lab management of undergraduates in gas storage and transport research has provided him significant insight into mentoring and managing multiple priorities in a high-paced environment.
