Grinias spent the past several years researching the fundamentals of liquid-phase separations in capillary and microfluidic columns as well as applications in neuroscience, molecular physiology, and pharmaceutical fields. Grinias’ work led to numerous presentations and nearly 20 peer-reviewed journal articles. He also studies the use of new technology to enhance educational outcomes in the undergraduate analytical chemistry curriculum.

Grinias received his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Eastern Michigan University in 2009 (where he won the Peet-Mayor Award that year as the top graduating senior) and his doctoral e in Analytical Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Grinias also completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at University of Michigan. He received many honors for his work, including a National Science Foundation Graduate Research fellowship, National Institutes of Health National Research Service Award postdoctoral fellowship, 2013 Csaba Horvath Young Scientist Award Winner, and was the 2017 Eastern Michigan University Young Alumnus of the Year.
