LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A prize-winning chemist and Purdue University professor whose work includes making chemical analysis a faster “CSI”-style process with portable field devices is speaking next month at the University of Louisville.

Graham Cooks won the third Dreyfus Prize in the chemical sciences in 2013 for research that advanced the field of chemical instrumentation. He was nominated for his impact in a technique of identifying compounds in complex mixtures. The technique could be used in medical diagnosis, explosives detection and chemical fingerprinting such as that featured on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

Cooks speaks at 2 p.m. Monday in Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium and will deliver a more scientifically oriented talk at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in the same location.
