My name is Martin Mendez, I am an intern at ASaP in de R&D department since October 2020. I am originally from Argentina but have lived overseas most of my live. I am an electrical engineer by trade with over 15 years of experience.
Four years ago I decided to challenge myself and switch carriers from electrical engineering to analytical chemistry. I am currently a third year student at the University of Applied Science Leiden, on my second year of studies I became a member of the Analytical Sciences Talent Program. It is a nationwide program that seeks to connect talented students with highly specialized, high quality companies that focus on the analytical sciences.
During a conference I learned about ASaP and was very impressed by the organization to the point that I applied for an internship at the company and after an interview with Michael and Martin I became a member of their R&D team.
In my project I analyze natural gas with a newly developed process gas chromatograph with a focus on accuracy for the determination of the gas composition. ASaP has provided me with all the support necessary to make this project a success and I could not be happier to be surrounded by a group dedicated colleagues that truly care about what they do.
