Name

[Schug, Kevin A]

Biography

Kevin Schug is Professor and Shimadzu Distinguished Professor of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA).  Dr. Schug received his B.S. degree in Chemistry in 1998 from the College of William and Mary, and his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Virginia Tech in 2002 under the supervision of Prof. Harold M. McNair.  From 2003-2005, he performed post-doctoral research in the laboratory of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Lindner at the University of Vienna in Austria. Since joining U.T. Arlington in 2005, his research has been focused on the theory and application of separation science, mass spectrometry, and spectroscopy for solving a variety of analytical and physical chemistry problems.  Three main research threads are currently pursued with some intertwined aspects:  1) Analysis of the potential impact of unconventional oil and gas extraction on the environment; 2) streamlined multidimensional methodology for trace bioanalysis of small molecules and proteins; and 3) evaluation and application of novel analytical technologies.  Financial support for this research has been from U.T. Arlington, Eli Lilly and Company, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and various corporate sponsors. He has received the 2009 Emerging Leader in Chromatography award given by LCGC magazine, an NSF CAREER award, the 2009 Eli Lilly and Company ACACC Young Investigator Award in Analytical Chemistry, the 2013 American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry Young Investigator in Separation Science Award, the 2014 University of Texas System Regents Outstanding Teaching Award, and the 2017 American Chemical Society J. Calvin Giddings Award for Excellence in Education.  In 2016, he was named a Fellow of the University of Texas System Academy of Distinguished Teachers.  He is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board for Journal of the American Society for Mass SpectrometryAnalytica Chimica Acta, and LCGC Magazine; he is a Senior Editor for Journal of Separation Science.
