Biographical Info

Research in our group focuses on increasing the structural information from mass spectrometry measurements for bioanalytical applications. We make use of physical chemistry tools, such as lasers, and develop methods and instrumentation that allow other physical parameters of the ions to be characterized (e.g. infrared absorption), so that “more than the mass” of the ions can be determined. Topical projects include 1) the structural elucidation of metabolites (and other small molecules) based on cryogenic IR spectra, and 2) the differentiation of oligosaccharides based on IR fragmentation patterns.
