Agilent Technologies, Inc.
Having been involved in the mass spectrometry space since 2011, ASMS is the professional organization that has actively supported my professional development throughout my early career. What stuck out to me most was the extensive effort to support undergraduate, graduate, and early-career members with a variety of valuable benefits through stipends, workshops, and presentation opportunities. After years of membership and attendance to the conferences and user meetings, I aim to give back to the community to help support the next batch of scientific professionals.
Patrick M. Batoon, B.S Biochemistry (University of the Pacific), Ph.D. in Bioanalytical and Physical Chemistry (University of the Pacific with Professors Jianhua Ren and Prof. O. David Sparkman), and postdoctoral researcher at Agilent Technologies Inc. Dr. Batoon is the full scope product manager for Agilent’s “triple quadrupole LC/MS systems” product line.
As a product manager at Agilent Technologies, Patrick sits at the interface between business and science, playing a large role in the design, development, and go-to-market activities for the LC/MS quadrupole product line. Prior to his role as product manager, Patrick was an R&D chemist – applying his understanding of mass spectrometry fundamentals and ion chemistry for the development of products he now represents.
Patrick is actively part of the “Agilent After-School” outreach organization for children and often participates in “young professional” events (at local Universities and at ASMS conferences) to give his experience on how to navigate an early career in scientific/mass spectrometry industry. Prior to that, he was president of his Graduate Student Association with the intention to build a culture of openness and camaraderie between the graduate student organization.
