Professor Alan G. Marshall obtained his Ph.D. from Stanford University. Before joining the faculty at Florida State University, he was a faculty member at the University of British Columbia and at Ohio State University. His recognitions include: Alfred P. Sloan Fellow, American Chemical Society Award in Chemical Instrumentation, Eastern Analytical Symposium Award, American Chemical Society Field-Franklin Award in Mass Spectrometry, Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh Maurice F. Hasler Award, New York Society for Applied Spectroscopy Gold Medal, and the American Society for Mass Spectrometry Distinguished Contribution Award. He is a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and is an FSU Distinguished Research Professor.

Research includes: fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry, protein structure and folding in solution and gas phase, non-covalent bonding in biological macromolecules, mixture analysis by ultrahigh-resolution mass spectrometry, ultrasensitive mass analysis (at level of a single biological cell), environmental mass spectrometry, and optical spectroscopy of mass-selected trapped ions.
