Jentaie Shiea received his B.S. degree in chemistry from the National Chung-Hsing University, Taichung, Taiwan, in 1981. He received the M.S. (1988) and Ph.D. (1991) degrees from the Montana State University. His thesis studies focus on organic geochemistry and analytical/physical chemistry. After completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Material Science, Pennsylvania State University, he joined the faculty of the National Sun Yat-Sen University (NSYSU), Kaohsiung, Taiwan. He is now a distinguished Professor at the Department of Chemistry and the Director of Technical and Medical Center of NSYSU. Shiea authored or coauthored more than 150 scientific publications and presentations at internationally scientific meetings. In the last decade, he has devoted himself to promoting mass spectrometric research in Taiwan and Asia. Currently, he serves as the President of the Taiwan Society for Mass Spectrometry (TSMS) and the Executive Board Member and Representative of Region B (Asia and Oceania) of the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation (IMSF). Shiea?s research interests have long been involved in biological and organic mass spectrometry, instrumentation, separation, proteomics, forensic, and polymer sciences. His current research work in his laboratory focuses on three main aspects: (1) developing ionization techniques for ambient mass spectrometry and applying AMS on food safety, forensic science, environmental chemistry, antiterrorism, and phytochemistry, (2) interfacing mass spectrometry with HPLC, GC, CE, and TLC, and (3) searching disease biomarkers in the biological fluids with modern mass spectrometry. Currently, he is the Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) and board member of several government and university committees in controlled drugs, public health and engineering, and patent evaluation.
