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.
My research group has an interest in recording pure rotational spectra from molecules containing either thorium or uranium. We are the only research group in the world doing this. We have recorded many U-dependent and Th-dependent rotational transitions. Please contact me for more information.
Most recently I have developed a spectral imaging laboratory for the chemical and physical investigation of cultural objects.
