Professional Summary

Tom Ridgway is Professor of Chemistry and Graduate Program Director for the Department of Chemistry and a member of the Chemical Sensors Group. He is an Analytical Chemist with research interests in electrochemical and optical sensors, instrument design and remote sensing. His PhD research with Professor Charles N Reilley involved both theoretical electrochemistry, particularly Spectroelectrochemistry, and the development of computer controlled chemical instrumentation. He stayed on at Chapel Hill for a post doctorate to be part of a team that developed the first microprocessor based laboratory data acquisition and control computer. He joined the Chemistry Department of the University of Cincinnati in the fall of 1976. He is a past member of the instrumentation advisory board of Analytical Chemistry and, former secretary of the Computers in Chemistry division of the American Chemical Society and an alternate councilor of the local section of the ACS. He is also member of the Board of Directors of the Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry.
