Dr. Nelson began her career in science at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, from which she graduated with a B.S. in Biophysics and Chemistry in 1988. Christine then received an M.S. degree in Environmental Engineering Science from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, concentrating there on the analysis of fog water in the Los Angeles Air Basin.Dr. Nelson continued her study at Cal Tech in a Chemistry program under the advisement of Mitchio Okumura. Her doctoral work involved looking at photodissociation and reaction dynamics of chlorine containing species important in stratospheric ozone chemistry. Following the completion of her Ph.D. study, Dr. Nelson accepted a post-doc position at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where she developed her mass spectrometry expertise in her investigation of MALDI's application to DNA sequencing. She also studied mechanisms of oligonucleotide fragmentation during MALDI, hence forming the basis of the talk she will present at the upcoming SANDMAN.
