Keynote Speakers 2024

MDCW: Keynote Speakers 2024: Dr. Gwen O'Sullivan, Dr. Sarah Prebihalo, Dr. Qinggang Wang, Dr. Thomas Bouvarel

Dr. Gwen O'Sullivan
  • Professor & Vice Dean Research & Scholarship, Mount Royal University

Title of Keynote Lecture: From Wildfire Origins to Courtroom Verdicts: Exploring Arson Investigations with Multidimensional Chromatography

Gwen is an environmental chemist specializing in Environmental Forensics, particularly in wildfire forensics, arson investigation, air monitoring, and risk assessment. She combines analytical chemistry and environmental science to study the origins and behavior of pollutants and their environmental impacts. Over the course of her career, in industry, consultancy, and academia, Gwen has developed technical expertise in the areas of wildfire forensics, environmental chemistry, environmental forensics, air quality, and contaminated land and groundwater. She has worked environmental forensic investigations involving compounds of concerns including ignitable liquids, drilling fluids, petroleum hydrocarbons, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenlys, polychlorinated dibenso-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans, methane, and nitrates. She has also authored numerous scientific articles, edited book series, and successfully competed for research grants both nationally and internationally.​

Dr. Sarah Prebihalo
  • Chemist, U.S. Food and Drug Administration

Title of Keynote Lecture: From research to routine analysis - The role of GC×GC in the regulatory space

​​​Sarah Prebihalo is a Chemist at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in Maryland as a part of the Office of Regulatory Science at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN). Sarah worked as a laboratory technician at Procter and Gamble for 2 years after obtaining her Bachelor’s in Chemistry, before moving to Pennsylvania to obtain her Masters in Forensic Chemistry at Penn State. In 2015 she began working towards her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Washington in Seattle, which she obtained in 2020. After completing a 2 year postdoctoral fellowship at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, she transitioned to her current role as Chemist and is involved in non-targeted method development for foods and dietary supplements using GC×GC. ​

Dr. Qinggang Wang
  • Scientific Director, Chemical Process Development, Bristol Myers Squibb

Title of Keynote Lecture: Two-dimensional liquid chromatography for small molecule pharmaceutical analysis – more knowledge in less time

​​​Qinggang Wang, Ph.D., is a Scientific Director in Chemical Process Development in Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. He received his B.S. in Chemistry and Ph. D. in Analytical Chemistry from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. His work has been focused on CMC analytical supports for various projects within BMS portfolio, inclding small molecules, synthetic peptides and oligonuleotides. He has authored or co-authored 18 peer-reviewed publications and three book chapters in analytical science. His research focuses on application of novel analytical techniques to pharmaceutical analysis. He is the recipient of BMS BMSIARC award for outstanding achievement in analytical science in 2019.

Dr. Thomas Bouvarel
  • Senior Scientist, Department of Analytical Protein Chemistry, Genentech

Title of Keynote Lecture: On-line Multi-Dimensional LC/MS: The Next-Generation Tool for Real-Time Monitoring of Antibody Quality Attributes in Biopharmaceutical Processes

Thomas Bouvarel is currently Senior Scientist in the Department of Analytical Protein Chemistry at Genentech (a member of Roche group) in South San Francisco, California. He received his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from Sorbonne University, France. After completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, he joined Genentech. His research involves the development and implementation of novel multi-dimensional liquid chromatography methodologies for the characterization and on-line monitoring of biomacromolecules.
