I am interested in the interaction between light and matter. Photons with frequencies close to those received by an FM radio are useful for probing the structural landscapes of large molecules. I build and use spectrometers that utilize these frequencies. During the course of studying large molecules I often observe unique, microscopic features pertaining to a molecules structure which I then characterize. The information I obtain is useful in the fields of biochemistry, chemistry, physics and even polymer chemistry.
If you are interested in working in this highly rewarding field please let me know.
