My efforts are focused on developing methods and facilitating research efforts using mass spectrometry (MS). Mass spectrometers provide a powerful means for analyzing molecules and their behavior, from small atmospheric gases to large biomolecules like proteins. From MS data we obtain important structural information helping to identify characteristics like organic functional groups and the primary sequence of peptides and proteins. More sophisticated methods allow for the relative quantification of molecules across samples, forming the basis for proteomics and metabolomics analyses.
