Expert Cytometry, or ExCyte, was born out of the desire to make flow cytometry accessible to anyone interested in learning it. Flow Cytometry used to have an almost cultish existence, using battered notebooks to pass down knowledge. The problem was that this information generally never wnet beyond a particular institution. Learning was dependent on who you knew (or trial and error over the years), which slowed down progress.
We formed ExCyte with the purpose of gathering people who are as passionate about learning successful flow cytometry as we are. Our goal is to make a lifetime of learning flow cytometry available to everyone. Our team has decades of experience teaching and managing flow labs and we collaborate closely with others like us to present a systematic, structured, and enjoyable program.
I enjoy answering paradigm-shifting questions and trouble-shooting puzzling glitches. I also like finding new ways to enhance old procedures. I’m passionate about my professional relationships and strive to fill them with positive energy.
My other passions include grilling, wine tasting, and real food. To be honest, my biggest passion is flow cytometry, which is something that Carol and I share. My personal mission is to make flow cytometry education accessible, relevant, and fun. I’ve had a long history in the field starting all the way back in graduate school.
Flow cytometry is a powerful technology and I’m grateful to have worked with so many leaders in the field, including Tim and Carol above. I’ve been doing flow cytometry for almost 10 years, since my first year of graduate school, and have since gone on to work with FlowJo where I helped develop FlowJo Version 10, training over 10,000 professionals in 20 countries around the world on topics ranging from flow cytometry data analysis and statistics to flow cytometry controls and compensation.
I love the business side of flow cytometry, especially marketing and communications. My goal is to utilize leading edge knowledge and processes in these areas to help bring flow cytometry education to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.
