They have individually received several awards, including the Williams-Wright Award of the Coblentz Society, the Eastern Analytical Symposium Award for Contributions to NIR and the ASTM International Award of Merit.
Workman is currently the senior technical editor for Spectroscopy® and its sister publication, LCGCtm North America. He is also a certified core adjunct professor at National University in San Diego, California, and a principal at Biotechnology Business Associates.
