Dr. Jorgensen is a seasoned scientist with a diverse background in chemistry and material sciences. Currently he focuses his efforts on using extractable and leachable chemistry in the evaluation of medical device biocompatibility. His academic work focused on synthesis and characterization of biomimetic materials, fabrication of microscale devices, and photonics. He has a professional interest in both technical and popular science writing, which has produced over 30 peer reviewed scientific articles and hundreds of blog articles.
To characterize materials Dr. Jorgensen has extensively used a wide variety of techniques including GC/MS, LC/MS, FTIR, UV/VIS, SEM, NMR, and several types of advanced spectroscopic techniques. His PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Utah was based on the fabrication and analysis of titanium dioxide and silicon dioxide photonic crystals templated from the three-dimensional structure found in the exoskeleton of exotic weevils. During his time at the University of Utah, he received the Henry Eyring Research Fellowship, the DOW Chemical First Year Scholarship, and additional grants to travel and present his research at national and international conferences.
