Dr. Juan Araneda, Nanalysis' resident citizen of the world, was born in Venezuela and raised in Chile. He moved to Calgary in the mid-2000s to purse Chemistry at the UofC under the supervision of Warren Piers. Unable to contain his enthusiasm for the Calgary winter, he opted to remain in the Great White North, bringing his expertise to our Application Chemistry team. Since then he's been acquiring multi-nuclear spectra and naming compounds on the coolest benchtop NMR's around!
Ethan is a quintessential East Coast boy - a hockey Centermen turned chemist. After finishing his BSc in Chemistry from Mount Allison he took himself on the road.
