Battelle has named its 12th senior research leader — Mark Bauer — on Wednesday.
Bauer is an analytical chemist who has been with for Battelle for 27 years. He's worked in environmental protection areas and since 2001 has been a large part of the firm's research in Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) defense division. The role of senior research leader is one of the highest honors a Battelle employee could be bestowed with and includes many years of hard work, dedication and the ability to lead in areas of technology, mentoring, business and development.
“Mark’s accomplishments and technical creativity have made significant contributions to Battelle and to the United States government,” CBRNE Defense Threat Assessment Leader Ronna Burton said. “Our clients have noted their appreciation for his ability to consistently deliver high-quality, defensible results to their technical missions."
After he received his master's degree and Ph.D. from Michigan State University he became involved in projects with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA,) specifically with agricultural product development. Following that he transferred to the CBRNE Defense Business division.
Battelle uses the latest in technology and research methods to aid in problem solving on world issues and making science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) more available to consumers.
