About Us

Senior Staff & Officers

William Geiger

Senior Partner

Bill founded Consolidated Sciences way back in 1988. Since then he’s literally written the book on Trace Analysis of Specialty and Electronics Gases.

 

Blake McElmurry, PhD

Senior Scientist

Blake joined Consolidated Sciences in November of 2014 to develop methods of analysis for pure and mixed gas types using ICP-QQQ, ICP-MS, GC-MS, and FTIR. He also designs software to enhance automated FTIR quantitation and sample introduction.

 

Jesus Anguiano

Senior Scientist

Jesus can usually be seen presenting state-of-the-art research at conferences such as PITTCON and the Gulf Coast Conference. In addition, he co-authored "Appendix A: Materials of Construction" in Trace Analysis of Specialty and Electronics Gases.
