I’m Tim Last. I worked for 25 years at a multinational oil company (Shell) where I was involved as a researcher in improving gas separation and purification projects. In that capacity I have built up expertise with gas analyses. Now in a world of increased regulations and increased specialization I found that my original broad knowledge and skills could no longer be used to the full. It was time to say goodbye and look for opportunities at a smaller company. ASaP provides this opportunity with the advantage for me that I can use my accumulated knowledge and experience completely flexibly to guide trainees and develop new applications for existing and new analysis equipment.
