Dr. Robert Lodder


Dr. Lodder received his B.S. degree in Natural Science, along with a M.S. in Chemistry, from Xavier University in 1981 and 1983. He received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry in 1988 after working with Professor Gary M. Hieftje at Indiana University. Dr. Lodder holds joint appointments as a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Division of Analytical Chemistry of the Department of Chemistry at Kentucky. He serves on the board of directors of Spherix (Nasdaq: SPEX), as editor in chief of the astroanalytical chemistry and astrobiology journal Contact in Context, and as a member of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Advisory Committee on Pharmaceutical Science, Process Analytical Technologies subcommittee. Dr. Lodder is a first-prize winner in the 1990 international IBM Supercomputing Competition, as well as a winner of a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award, the American Society of Agricultural Engineers Paper Award, a Buchi NIR Award, the Tomas Hirschfeld Award in Near-IR Spectroscopy (PittCon), a Research and Development 100 Award, and the Orville N. Green Service Award (SETICon).
