Biographical Information
I coordinate, through Integrated Laboratory               Technologies, global laboratory support to help solve complex analytical               problems for upstream and downstream laboratories related with petroleum               characterization, organic, inorganic and geo chemistry and related               technologies for crude oil and its refined products.
              I personally provide process and environmental analytical consulting               to ChevronTexaco’s operating companies and its licensees.               I am knowledgeable on sampling for petroleum products and environmental               matrices (air, surface water, groundwater, and waste), and petroleum               and environmental analytical methods. I provide sampling and analysis               plan design and project management. I perform laboratory evaluations               for both EPA and ISO 17025 criteria, and do data quality evaluation               and validation for project management and litigation support. I               am the Lab Advisor to Chevron Global Refining’s Laboratory               Best Practices Team.
