Cody Pinger

Analytical Chemist
Cody Pinger is an analytical chemist at the Auke Bay Laboratories in Juneau, Alaska. He works in the Recruitment Energetics and Coastal Assessment group, and his research is focused on developing biochemical methods to better monitor Alaska's large marine ecosystems. He enjoys problem solving by using a wide range of instrumentation and analysis techniques, including: chromatography (both HPLC and GC), molecular spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, immunoassays, 3D-printing, and more.


Cody completed his undergraduate studies at Saginaw Valley State University (B.S. in Chemistry), where he performed research studying the cause of hypoxia events in a local watershed. He defended his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Michigan State University in 2018 while performing research in the lab of Dana Spence. His graduate school research utilized 3D-printing to fabricate novel tools for studying the effect of diabetes on bloodstream cells and proteins. During his post-doc, Cody managed a 3D-printing core Facility at MSU.
