Steven Choquette has been employed in the Analytical Chemistry Division of NIST for 16 years. During that time he has been involved in research and development of integrated optic sensors (both planar and fiber) and miniaturized analytical systems for bio/chemical analytes. His particular area of concentration was the immobilization of proteins, antibodies, and enzymes to sensor surfaces. More recently he has been involved in the production and certification of instrument performance validation standards for Raman, infrared, and near-infrared spectroscopy. His current research interests are the development of instrument independent Raman libraries, chemometric applications of NIR spectroscopy, and the development of intrinsic standards for routine validation of spectrometer performance. He is currently a member of several ASTM standards committees and is the vice-chair for the E13.06 committee for Raman spectroscopy. Recently, he was appointed to a three-year term as associate editor of the journal Analytical Chemistry.
