Basically, I am a writing lab technician.
I have been writing laboratory documents such as standard operating procedures, analytical methods and protocols, and reports as a part of my job as a research and development specialist with Bayer CropScience for the last sixteen years.
I have hands-on experience of extracting agrochemicals from crop, soil, and water samples before analyzing the extracts by mass spectroscopy. I have worked up the resulting data and written reports to be submitted to regulatory agencies (such as the US EPA, state-level agencies, and Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency) as part of studies required to maintain product registration.
Before Bayer, I worked at the North Carolina Department of Consumer Services where my labwork on raw produce contributed to the USDA Pesticide Data Program and at CompuChem Laboratories doing analytical work on environmental remediation samples.
