Edward Sisco

Research Chemist

Ed Sisco has been a research chemist within the Surface and Trace Chemical Analysis Group since 2014.  His research has focused on mass spectrometry systems for forensics, homeland security, and other applications. Ed has extensive knowledge in traditional mass spectrometry systems (GC-MS, LC-MS, IC-MS), secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), and ambient ionization mass spectrometry (AI-MS) such as DART-MS, DESI-MS, DEFFI-MS, etc. Ed's current research efforts are focused on addressing measurement challenges in forensic chemistry, providing fundamental measurements to address the opioid epidemic, and increasing awareness of the advantages of implementing AI-MS in screening and laboratory environments.  He is a member of the Fire Debris & Explosives subcommittee on OSAC, a member of ASTM, and an associate editor for Forensic Chemistry.
