Gustavus Adolphus College chemistry professor Dwight Stoll has been named to The Analytical Scientist’s 2019 Power List. According to a release, the leading industry publication’s Power List celebrates the tremendous range of talent, ingenuity, and leadership present across all corners of analytical science by highlighting the pioneering work and passion of 100 leaders in the field.

Stoll is recognized as one of the foremost experts in multidimensional liquid chromatography, which is a technique that allows researchers to separate complex substances so they become easier to analyze. He is currently utilizing an Agilent Technologies Thought Leader Award to serve as the leader of an international team of researchers—including Gustavus undergraduates—that seeks to resolve challenges that biopharmaceutical scientists face when analyzing complex samples.

Previously, Stoll has been recognized with the John B. Phillips Award, LCGC’s Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award, the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, the American Chemical Society’s Young Investigator in Separation Science Award, and was named to The Analytical Scientist’s “Top 40 Under 40 2014 Power List” and list of Top Ten Separation Scientists Worldwide. He also won the Gustavus Faculty Scholarly Achievement Award in 2016.

“Dwight’s repeated presence within The Analytical Scientist’s Power List is illustrative of his prominence among the top, world-renowned scholars in the field of analytical chemistry,” Gustavus Provost and Dean of the College Brenda Kelly said. “We are thrilled to support Dwight and his Gustavus student research collaborators in this high-caliber work within the newly expanded and renovated Nobel Hall of Science at Gustavus Adolphus College.”

To identify the top scientists in the field for the 2019 Power List, the The Analytical Scientist held open nominations before the candidates were whittled down to the final 100 by a panel of independent judges.

“Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate—and congratulations to our Top 100!,” The Analytical Scientist editor Charlotte Barker said in the organization’s release. “The Analytical Scientist is proud to celebrate their achievements—and those of analytical scientists around the world.”
