Credentials: Chemistry Ph.D., Summer 2020 (Coon)

Professor Joshua J. Coon
The Development of Computational Strategies for the Improved Interpretation and Dissemination of Multi-Omic Mass Spectrometry Data
Future Plans
I'm currently pursuing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Morgridge Institute for Research. I'm hoping to spend the next two or three years developing my skills as an independent researcher and develop complementary skills to my currently computationally heavy repertoire.

I had amazing experiences with my Chemistry friends in the Greater Madison Area. Our camping trips and outings to Devil’s Lake were always a blast!


I graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota in 2015. During my time as an Analytical chemistry graduate student here at Wisconsin, I studied under Professor Joshua Coon in the field of mass spectrometry. More specifically, my research focuses on the development of tools that takes our mass spectrometry data and determines its quality, extracts rigorous quantitative measures from said data, and effectively communicates the experimental results with the broader scientific community. I was awarded a fellowship in the Genomics Sciences Training Program my second year, which provided valuable cross-training experience and professional development. After graduation, I am planning to spend a few years as post-doctoral researcher here at UW to work on some exciting new projects.
