Roger L. McMullen, Ph.D. is a Principal Scientist and currently leads the Materials Science department at Ashland Specialty Ingredients. He has 20 years of experience working in the personal care sector, and his research interests involve various aspects of imaging technologies and image analysis. He is an avid amateur photographer and is involved with various imaging associations including the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Roger received a B.S. in Chemistry from Saint Vincent College and a Ph.D. in Biophysical Chemistry from Seton Hall University. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University where he teaches biochemistry to students enrolled in the Master’s in Cosmetic Science program.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
To provide attendees with image analysis skills that they can immediately take back to the laboratory and put to use in their daily activities. A variety of imaging technologies and image analysis techniques will be discussed. By the end of the course, attendees should feel comfortable interpreting and gathering data from state-of-the-art imaging technologies.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS COURSE
Imaging is paramount in the evaluation of personal care products as well as understanding basic structure and function of skin and hair. Anyone interested in learning more about imaging technologies and how they relate to problems facing cosmetic scientists will greatly benefit from this course. In addition, researchers and product developers that work with products that change the appearance of skin, hair, eyelashes, or nails will learn how macro imaging technologies can be used to quantify appearance.
