Michael Wrigley is a 2018-2022 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in bioanalytical chemistry. He received a B.S. (2016) in chemistry, with a minor in economics from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. Michael followed a non-traditional path to KU. It began after high school with eleven years of service in the U.S. Navy followed by employment with a small analytical standards reference company in Charleston, SC. It was there that Michael discovered his passion for analytical chemistry. His current research area focuses on hydrogen-deuterium exchange mass spectrometry as a tool to understanding the higher order structures and interaction of proteins.
