David A. Godin is the Director of Field Forensic Applications for 908 Devices in Boston, Massachusetts. He holds a Masters of Forensic Sciences Degree from Boston University and a B.S. degree in Chemistry from the United States Military Academy. Mr. Godin served five years as a US Army Chemical Officer in the 110th Chemical Battalion, Technical Escort. During that time, he served as Chemical Analyst and Officer in Charge of the Combined Explosive Exploitation Cell-North in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He has trained hundreds of Emergency Response personnel in the field analysis of controlled substances, HAZMAT Operations and CBRNE Response.

Dr. Mark L. Norman is a Senior Field Applications Scientist and Optical Technology Subject Matter Expert for 908 Devices. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry from West Virginia Wesleyan College and a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His graduate research focused on the infrared spectroscopic properties of stratospheric aerosols, and he is an author on seven peer-reviewed publications, including a 2003 collaboration with global climatology scientists from NASA. Since his professional career began in 2001, Dr. Norman has worked with detection technologies for emergency response, and he is an inventor on two patents for the development of hazardous gas and vapor identification systems. He has developed and delivered numerous scenario-based training courses for chemical detectors and has taught chemical science courses including General Chemistry and Quantitative Chemical Analysis at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts. In addition to FTIR and Raman optical technologies, Dr. Norman’s other areas of analytical expertise include IR lasers, broadband and hyperspectral IR imaging, high-pressure mass spectrometry, and chemical sensing.
