Grant Craig is currently a researcher for the IsoNose project based at Thermo Fisher Scientific in Bremen, Germany. The focus of his research as part of IsoNose is focused on the development of transient signal applications for multicollector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS). From Scotland, Grant read for an MSc in Forensic and Analytical Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde, graduating in 2011. Subsequently he undertook a PhD at Loughborough University, in collaboration with the UK’s NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratory, on the analysis of sub-micron sized uranium oxide particles by laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), which he defended in 2015.
