Scott Ecelberger received an M.S. in Applied Physics from the Johns Hopkins University in 1996 and a B.S. in Physics from Penn State University in 1986. He spent 20 years at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU-APL) working on a wide range of materials research, sensor science, and analytical instrumentation programs including more than 10 years developing miniature mass spectrometers. He has developed medical assay instrumentation for Diasorin, Inc. (Stillwater, MN), and bioaerosol sensors for ICx (Reisterstown, MD). In 2010 he co-founded C&E Research, Inc., a contract R&D company focused on miniature mass spectrometer development. C&E Research was acquired by Zeteo Tech in 2017. Scott is a hands-on experimental physicist who designs, builds, and tests analytical instrumentation. He has broad experience with vacuum systems, lasers and optics, high speed and high voltage electronics, BSL-3 containment labs, vacuum deposition systems, and TOF Mass Spectrometry. He holds 10 US Patents.
