About Dr. Stoll

Dwight Stoll did his undergraduate work at Minnesota State University, Mankato, in plant biology and biochemistry.  Upon graduation in 1999 he took a job in industry as a research technician with ZirChrom Separations, Inc.  For his graduate work he studied with Professor Peter Carr in the Chemistry Department at the University of Minnesota from 2001-2007, where he worked on the development of Fast, Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Liquid Chromatography.

In the fall of 2008, Dwight was hired as an Assistant Professor in the Chemistry Department at Gustavus Adolphus College, where he mainly teaches quantitative and instrumental analysis courses.  In 2014 he was promoted to Associate Professor at Gustavus, and in 2018 promoted to Professor. Currently, he is co-chair of the Chemistry Department. Active research projects in his laboratory touch upon most aspects of multi-dimensional separation methodologies, including optimization strategies, characterization of selectivity in reversed-phase HPLC, instrument development, and applications in biopharmaceutical analysis.

Dwight is the author or co-author of more than 62 peer-reviewed publications and three book chapters in the area of separation science, is a named co-inventor on four granted patents, and has instructed numerous short courses in two-dimensional liquid chromatography.  In 2011 he was the recipient of LCGC’s Emerging Leader in Chromatography Award. In 2014 he was named to The Analytical Scientist’s list of ‘Top 40 Under 40’ analytical scientists. In 2017 he received the Georges Guiochon Faculty Fellowship, and was recognized with an Agilent Technologies Thought Leader Award, which will support research in his laboratory on the development of 2D-LC methodologies for biopharmaceutical analysis.
