Jacob was born in Kansas, quickly moved to Dallas until he was 14, then hustled back to Kansas. Jacob finished high school by doing well academically and, more importantly, capturing the Umbro Poll, signifying the national championship in soccer.
Jacob received his B.S. Chemistry degree from the University of Kansas in Lawrence. Recommended by Dr. Cindy Larive, he attended graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where his Research Advisor was Dr. Mark Wightman.
Jacob had a number of projects at UNC. He specialized in making electrogenerated chemiluminescence measurements with ultramicroelectrodes at high efficiency and high speed. His experience with microelectrodes was of interest to Gamry -- that's where the instrument meets the sample!
After UNC, Jacob spent 1 1/2 years at a postdoctoral appointment with Dr. Chad Mirkin at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL working on electrodeposition, sensors, and nanomaterials. Jacob joined Gamry in 2008, and with us his projects include designing cells, most notably the ParaCell, and various tasks within the product marketing department. He also spends his day answering tech support calls and emails, where his forte is physical electrochemistry.
