Diana Wong

Diana Wong is a GC/MS Scientist at Agilent Technologies. She has worked at Agilent for 4 years. She did her postdoc at Agilent as a GC/MS Applications Chemist investigating compounds from medical devices that may potentially be leached on to the drug product. She obtained her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry at the University of California, Davis, screening small molecules in algae for biofuel applications, which was funded by Chevron. She has a patent for this research as well as publication in C&E News, a radioshow, with an invitation to speak at the Gordon Research Conference for discovering that antioxidants used in food can increase oil production in algae and it costs less than a penny to dose an industrial pond. Most importantly, these accomplishments helped her advisor receive tenure. Before Agilent, Diana worked at The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, California investigating metabolites differences as embryonic stem cell differentiate into cardiac cells and created a mass spectral database of metabolites. She received her B.S. in Pharmacological Chemistry at the University of California, San Diego. As an undergrad, she worked at a biotech company, Sequenom researching detection systems for cystic fibrosis using mass spectrometry.
