Aaron Payne joined Nanotech West in early August 2012 as a Laboratory Process Technician.
Prior to his arrival at Ohio State he worked in an analytical testing laboratory for the HVAC/R (heating, venting, air conditioning, and refrigeration) industry. During that time he gained extensive knowledge of numerous pieces of equipment and test methods using gas chromatography, ICP-AES, TAN/TBN, viscometers, FT-IR, and particle analyzers. He also worked directly with clients to develop specific test methods for materials compatibility in HVAC/R systems, participated in numerous safety audits, and assisted with the implementation of new policies and procedures for the laboratory.
Aaron holds a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Hanover College.
