Kermit Murray obtained his B.S. degree in Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1982. He received a Ph.D. in Chemical Physics at the University of Colorado in 1988, working with Professor W. Carl Lineberger on the chemistry and spectroscopy of negative ions. He went on to postdoctoral research on infrared spectroscopy at Rice University with Professor Robert F. Curl and at Texas A&M University with Professor David H. Russell, where he developed novel spray ionization methods for MALDI mass spectrometry. At Emory University, he was an assistant professor before moving to LSU in 1991, where he is now a professor. His research focuses on instrument development and applications of laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry.
