Amanda's interest in laboratory safety began during her organic chemistry graduate research, where she worked with tert-butyllithium on a regular basis. The infamous case of a researcher's fatal dimethyl mercury exposure through gloves also inspired her interest in glove compatibility. She holds a thesis M.S. in organic chemistry, and has more than five years of experience as an embedded safety professional in academic engineering and chemistry research.
