Tom Bruno led the Fluid Characterization Group of the Applied Chemicals and Materials Division at NIST’s Boulder, Colorado, campus. He has done research on properties of fuel mixtures, explosives, reacting fluids and environmental pollutants. He is also involved in research on supercritical fluid extraction and chromatography of bioproducts, the development of novel analytical methods for environmental contaminants, novel detection devices for chromatography, and he manages the division’s analytical chemistry laboratory. In his spare time, he is an avid and accomplished woodworker and has hand-built all the furniture in his house. Tom is very proud of his wife, a talented musician, and his daughter, a biologist who specializes in arachnology.
