The Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) Award for Outstanding Achievements in Chemometrics was presented to Peter de Boves Harrington on Tuesday 19 November. Harrington went on to present his talk “Chemometrics for the Masses: How to Painlessly Improve Your Science.” Harrington received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina‑Chapel Hill in 1988. From 1987 to 1989 he created the DOS-based software platforms Resolve and Presager for identifying bacteria from their pyrolysis‑mass spectra, while working for Kent Voorhees at the Colorado School of Mines. He joined the faculty of Ohio University (Athens, Ohio, USA) in 1989. In 1992, he founded the Center for Intelligent Chemical Instrumentation. He is the Director of the Ohio University Center for Intelligent Chemical Instrumentation and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and the North American Academy of Sciences. Harrington’s current research focuses on the development and coupling of artificial intelligence to chemotyping by spectrometric measurements of botanical medicines and foods.
