BSc, PgDipSci, MSc


Technical Specialist

Christopher was born in Paupa New Guinea and emigrated to New Zealand in 1997. He holds a Masters in Microbiology from the University of Otago, New Zealand. Christopher’s field of study involved research, producing biodiesel from oleaginous bacteria growing on waste substrates and the genetic transformation of oleaginous bacteria to accumulate triacylglycerols in various growth conditions. Prior to this Christopher earned a Bachelor of Science and Postgraduate Diploma of Science, majoring in Microbiology and Immunology and minoring in Marketing Management.

Christopher joined Syft Technologies 8 Months ago, and has established himself as an applications scientist specialising in using SIFT-MS for testing interior air and component testing.

  • Standards committee members, International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)
  • Car manufacturers, BMW and Ford Motor Company
  • Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Eagle Ottawa
  • Testing laboratory, IMAT
  • Instrument manufacturers, Syft Technologies and Gerstel

WEBINARS & APPLICATION NOTES:

We have been especially fortunate to have leading industry professionals, as well as our very own application specialists, covering a variety of relevant topics and discussing challenges facing the automotive industry. These have ranged from rapid vehicle interior testing to tailpipe emissions from vehicle exhaust. Still interested? Find out more about these amazing webinars below:

1. Automotive Material and Tailpipe Emissions Analysis with SIFT-MS. In this webinar, Yan Li and Chris Nones discuss exhaust gas analysis, emission screening of synthetic and natural vehicle components, and leak detection.

2. Rapid Vehicle Interior Air Quality Analysis with SIFT-MS. Industry Professional Dr. Michael Holzwarth and Yan Li review the applications of SIFT-MS, and the significance and measurement of volatiles in the automotive industry, emission chamber testing Spatial resolved “pinpoint” emission testing and whole-vehicle emission testing.

3. SIFT-MS as the single solution required for complete Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) analysis. This webinar discusses the capabilities of SIFT-MS for harmful volatile emissions in motor vehicles – from component level to finished vehicles.

ARTICLES:

Interested in how SIFT-MS can differentiate isomers? Our applications scientist Anna Robinson provides an in-depth view of how SIFT-MS provides unsurpassed selectivity capable of separating ethylbenzene and xylene – compounds that have limited separation by traditional chromatographic methods.
