My research interests focus on physical aspects of biomolecules and bioparticles. The research is highly interdisciplinary, combining knowledge of physics, chemistry, and biology to develop new methods and technologies to enhance our understanding of biomolecules and biomolecular assemblies. Ongoing projects include development of nanoparticle mass spectrometry with optical detection methods, measuring masses of single bacterial and viral particles with ion traps, probing molecules and complexes of proteomic importance by Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR) mass spectrometry, and application of diamond nanoparticles to surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry and microscopic imaging.
