Mark W. Spears Jr., Ph.D.
Southeast Regional Manager & Applications Scientist
Mark completed his PhD work in Analytical Chemistry at Georgia Tech. He studied under Professor L. Andrew Lyon and developed expertise in many analytical techniques including SEM, AFM, DLS, and MALS. Mark’s graduate work centered on the synthesis and applications of acrylamide-based polymer nanoparticles known as microgels. In particular, he was interested in using microgel assemblies as novel coating materials and characterizing the fundamental properties of the coatings that control how various cell types behave on the surface.
Mark joined Wyatt in 2015 and now lives in Cary, NC. He is responsible for sales, support, and instrument installations in the southeast – an ever expanding challenge! Mark is dedicated to providing the best ownership experience possible, and he enjoys helping to advance research in many areas of study.
