Ian Riversong, BS
Mr. Riversong serves as the laboratory technical director for EVIO Labs / Medford (previously known as Kenevir Research). Ian graduated from Southern Oregon University with a BS in Chemistry where he gained hands-on experience with a variety of analytical chemistry techniques including liquid and gas chromatography, NMR, mass spectroscopy, UV-Vis Spectroscopy, RAMAN Spectroscopy, AAS, and ICP/OES. Ian’s collegiate capstone work focused on elucidating the electrochemistry of wine tannins using chromatographic separation via HPLC and compound characterization with cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry.
Ian later spent several years working as an enologist for Pallet Wine Company, a custom crush facility located in the Rogue Valley, where he oversaw the production of all wine lots, totaling over 1000 barrels of wine, from grape crush to bottling. Ian managed the laboratory there performing various chemical extractions and characterizations including titrations, distillations, free-SO2 analysis, protein stability assays, alcohol level determination, enzymatic assays, and chromatography. After working in the wine industry, Mr. Riversong went on to spend over a year in the cannabis industry serving as a chemist developing cannabinoid and terpenoid extraction and analytical methods while operating and maintaining various extraction technologies including supercritical fluid extractors and short-path stills in a production environment.
