About me

Dr. Tackett earned his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry under the direction of Professor Paul Shepson at Purdue University.  His research involved the investigation of tropospheric halogen chemistry and its role in ozone depletion events in the Arctic atmosphere. He also worked on the design and implementation of an on-site flowing chemical reaction chamber interfaced with gas chromatography and coupled with electron capture detection.  Upon joining the FLIR team, Dr. Tackett acted as science technical lead for multiple projects before transitioning into product management.  Dr. Tackett currently oversees FLIR mass spectrometry solutions and is a volunteer HAZMAT technician in his local community
