Meet The Team


Our staff have a wealth of expertise in a range of GC-based analytical techniques. Read the biographies below to find out more about what we offer you.



Bob Green

Sales & Business Development Manager

With over 25 years’ experience in the analytical chemistry industry and as a specialist in GC–MS, Bob Green is uniquely well-qualified to offer advice to customers across the whole field.

His background include roles in engineering, applications development, service, technical support and technical/senior sales, and he has worked for or has experience of all the leading brands of GC, GC–MS and associated equipment. Bob’s key strengths are in time-of-flight mass spectrometry, automated sample preparation for GC, headspace sampling and thermal desorption – but his knowledge extends far beyond this.

Matthew Edwards

Business Development, Americas

Matt studied analytical chemistry at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, with particular emphasis on multi-dimensional separations. Matt remains based in Waterloo, from where he oversees the development of new markets and opportunities in the Americas, as well as providing technical and sales support.

Laura McGregor

Product Marketing Manager

Laura’s background is in analytical forensic science, and her Ph.D. (at the University of Strathclyde, UK) focused on the chemical fingerprinting of environmental contamination using GCxGC−TOF MS. Following roles in application support and product marketing for Markes International’s TOF MS and software portfolios, she joined SepSolve in October 2017, where she oversees marketing activities across the full product range, with a particular focus on GCxGC.

Ian Biggs

Product Service Manager

Ian has over 40 years’ experience of product development, systems design, applications support and instrument servicing in the analytical chemistry business. He has particular expertise in thermal desorption, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and headspace techniques, acquired in various roles at PerkinElmer and Markes International. Ian joined SepSolve in 2017, where he oversees the company’s service operations, and provides training, support materials and advice to SepSolve and third-party service engineers.

Anthony Buchanan

Field Applications Engineer

Anthony studied forensic science at Staffordshire University, and received a Masters in Analytical Toxicology from King’s College London in 2013. He then worked in the commercial laboratory sector, investigating extractables/leachables from polymers, and persistent organic pollutants in sediments and environmental water samples. In January 2018 he started work at SepSolve's laboratory facilities in Peterborough, UK, where he carries out method development, as well as assisting customers with product installations, method setup and training.

Ryan Sutherill

Senior Applications Engineer

Ryan joined SepSolve in October 2018. He develops new applications, performs instrument demonstrations, and provides customer training. Prior to joining SepSolve, Ryan worked within the commercial laboratory sector, where he developed methods for the analysis of environmental contaminants (such as herbicides) using a range of analytical instruments and sample preparation techniques

Helena Rice-Leask

Applications Engineer

Helena joined SepSolve’s team in Peterborough in May 2021, where she supports customers through the development, demonstration and handover of analytical methods across our range of instruments and software. Prior to joining SepSolve, Helena worked in the commercial laboratory sector where she performed fuel testing and developed new methods for environmental monitoring, using techniques such as GC-FID, GC-MS and GCxGC-FID.

James Ogden

Applications Engineer

James joined SepSolve’s team in Peterborough in December 2021.  He has a wealth of experience in thermal desorption, headspace and liquid injection for GC, GCxGC and GC–MS, and supports our customers through the development, demonstration and handover of analytical methods across our range of instruments and software.
