B.S. in Chemistry
Meet Matthew Hansen, True Northwest’s Lead Chemist. He graduated from Westminster College with a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry. Following graduation, he spent four years gaining valuable experience as the laboratory manager of the BioInnovations Gateway, a life science incubator which provided resources to start-up companies and mentorship opportunities for high school students. While managing the lab at the incubator he functioned as a technician, instructor, safety compliance officer, life coach, and, occasionally, custodian.
Matthew traded the red rock canyons of Utah for the Wasatch Peaks of the Pacific Northwest when he joined True Northwest, as the resident chemist, in February of 2018. He specializes in instrument maintenance and troubleshooting, statistical data analysis, method development, analyzing residual solvents using GC-MS, and collaborating with the Lab Director in analyzing cannabinoids and terpenes.
Matthew is committed to upholding True Northwest’s high standards in science to provide ethical, reproducible, accurate, and timely data to the clients of True Northwest.
